Birthday Party Entertainment For Kids


Face it, paper hats and pin the tail on the donkey are pretty lame for today’s birthday party. Kid’s have “been there, done that.” If you want to make your child’s party special, think  entertainment .

Just sending a group of kids screaming into a party room for 2 hours is a pretty dull and unimaginative way to celebrate one of the biggest days in your child’s life. While it’s fun, it’s hardly special. Kids go to these party factories every day and some are so impersonal and noisy there’s not much to enjoy.

Having a birthday part for your child in a restaurant? That’s a lot more special, but make sure you plan out the  entertainment . Kids get bored fast just sitting at a table. Having the party at home certainly makes the party more personal than a loud and crazy party room. But again, make sure you have some  entertainment  planned. Here are some ideas.

Inflatable Bounce Rides. Rent an inflatable at any good party rental location. but be aware that every year children get hurt on these rides and you are personally liable for any bodily harm they cause. You need to keep a very close eye on the children and insist that children not be left unattended. Parents of children under the age of five must stay and supervise their kids. If you have the room and adequate supervision, the children will enjoy these rides for a while. But, be aware that in the event of rain these rides may not be suitable for indoor use. Have a backup plan.

Clowns. Not all clowns are scary, some are downright cute. Look for a clown who does not wear too much makeup. A “white-face clown” is too shocking and abstract for young kids and may actually frighten your guests. Choose a clown who has a friendly and human appearance for very little children. Be sure your clown has plenty of activities.

Magicians. Magic shows are by far the best type of  entertainment  for children ages 5 and up. For younger audiences we recommend a combination of magic, juggling and other goofy activities. A magician will make the birthday child star of the show. The birthday child will get to help the magician perform tricks and help make the magic happen. When your birthday child gets to be the star assistant and make magic it will create a life long memory. You’ll cherish the photographs of your child helping the magician and the children will be thrilled by the experience.

Only book a birthday magic show if you have at least 45 minutes of time for the show and a quiet, well-lit environment free from distraction. If the show is to be held outside, be sure to provide seating in the shade.
