Make your child’s party memorable. Let’s start with the entertainment.
Kids parties in 2018 should extravagant and something worth remembering. Aside from the delicious food and cake, the entertainment at a children’s party is what your little guests always look forward to. This part of party planning shouldn’t be stressful! It should be just a fun as seeing the look on your child’s surprised face. Let your creative juices flowing and get inspired by this list of unique entertainment ideas to make your little one’s special day, well, special.
Whatever theme your child desires, add some costumes and face painting entertainment to get the other kids character. From princess and pirates to superheroes and safari themes, there is so much creativity for playing dress up and getting your child’s guests excited and involved. This also works for face painting and airbrushing! This idea is great for memorable photos to look back on.
Speaking of photos, why not rent out a photo booth at your party? They give everyone (not just kids) something to keep and bring home. Include different props and costume ideas to get everyone looking animated. Photos are a must for documenting special celebrations.
Not only are you getting a petting zoo in your own backyard, but also a bit of education for you and your little guests. Give kids the opportunity to meet and greet mammals, birds, and reptiles that’ll spark their fascination. Animals bring life to a party and kids always get excited when they see them. If you want to step up your party animal level, even more, you could even plan pony rides with certified animal trainers.
Watch the kids get intrigued by the amazing wonders of magic. Your guests will definitely be entertained by the cool tricks and stunts your magicians can pull. If your child and guests are a bit younger, consider puppeteers. They can get a laugh, a story told, and fun imagination flowing throughout the show.
Forget the clown, get some characters your kids can definitely relate to! These are very simple to plan with theme parties with famous movie/show characters and for non-movie characters as well. This gives kids interaction with their favorite characters and make great photo ops!
Music is always the life of the party for all of your guests no matter how old they are. You could provide a Disney themed playlist or even get some karaoke going! It’s always a fun time when everyone is dancing to their favorite music or simply having background music everyone can enjoy while eating and socializing.
Think outside your backyard and take your party to the entertainment instead. Venues with already themed settings like zoos, adventure zones, and sports arenas (bowling alleys, mini-golf course, laser tag, etc) add more variety of entertainment to your child’s special day. It’s also a plus for you because there’s less to clean up after. It’s a win-win situation!
