How to Book an Entertainer
Most children’s parties occur between 12 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays and lasts usually 4 hours.
It’s best to schedule the performer's show 1 to 2 hours after the party is planned to begin especially if you have many guests traveling long freeway distances or if you know that your guests tend to run late.
It is a good idea to keep the entertainment simple for children ages 1 to 5. Small children love balloons and music. Little girls like princesses and little boys like super heroes and pirates. Traditional white face clowns or Auguste face Clowns (clowns with little or no face makeup) are also great for boys and girls.
Kids 6 to 10 usually enjoy themed parties, magic, balloons, face painting and party games. Tea, dance, dress-up and glamour face make-up parties are girly girl favorites. Super heroes and sports are usually a hit with boys. Boys and girls enjoy animals, moon bounces, fake tattoos, games and amusement park-like rides.
Goodie bags are a must! These are filled with goodies (toys and/or candy) appropriate for the age and gender of your party guests. If you hire entertainment they may be able to provide these to fit your budget. If you're keeping to a particularly tight budget, inexpensive prizes and souvenirs can be found at some discount stores. Your entertainment provider should have suggestions for you. Be sure to hand them out as your guest leave so they won't get distracted or leave more of a mess for you to have to clean up.
