Four Things to Eliminate from Your Kids' Party | Children's Entertainers' Tips
Throughout the years, we have noticed there are a few things that a lot of parents have that are included at their child's party that aren't really necessary, especially if you're planning on hiring a kid's entertainer. Going overboard with your children's party will leave you with money down the train. More doesn't always equal better. That's not a problem because we're going to break down four things you don't need for your child's birthday party.
This is the big one we see more often than that. Bouncy castles are most popular within the Summer. A lot of our clients will book a bouncy castle alongside our Hassle Free Package. The problem with this is it's overkill. The kids will be more interested in our entertainer performing their magic tricks and high energy party games that the bouncy castle will be rarely used. Another issue with a bouncy castle is the weather. If it's raining heavily, chances are the company providing them is going to cancel on you.
It's understandable because of health and safety regulations. We've been contacted by several parents in the past asking for our help because of their original entertainment cancelling on them for various reasons. Bouncy castles are part of this reason as well. In the long run booking, a bouncy castle isn't worth it when you are hiring an entertainer.
A lot of parents will organise more than enough food for everyone to line up and fill their plates with. While it's important that everyone has something to eat in between the fun, the problem with buffets is how much food is left over and wasted. Our childrens party entertainer suggests going with snack boxes instead. They are much easier to organise and you can accommodate every child's specific dietary requirements. Each box can be filled with sandwiches, snack bars and a bottled drink. That way there is no waste, it's quicker and easier to process.
This one is a bit of a controversial subject but here us out. While having a venue is a great way to set up your children's birthday, we firmly believe you do not need a venue in order to run a successful party. The children's entertainment industry has changed a lot over the years, especially during 2020 when we were all forced to stay at home because of the pandemic. It's why we introduced virtual parties. The concept brought the thrill of our hassle free experience right to your doorstep at a fraction of the cost with the same quality.
A lot of clients nowadays are holding their kid's birthday at home. Garden parties are usually the most popular option for having a party at home. As long as there is space for everyone to attend and enough for your entertainer to set up their equipment, you're good to go. Our entertainers bring their own special equipment designed to work indoors and outdoors. Having a party at home saves you money on hall hire and is perfect for children who are shy. You will be surprised how well it works!
Balloons easily brighten up the atmosphere. Everyone loves seeing a really well decorated venue, One thing to keep in mind though is avoiding leaving blown up balloons all over the floor. While it looks great when the kids first walk in, it can lead to more problems than necessary for your entertainer. It makes it harder to get the kids attention when they're starting the show as balloons are very distracting and too tempting for kids to ignore. The best way to get around this is to get the children to put the balloons at the back of the room before the magic show starts. Just make sure they're in an area where they are there for decorative purposes, not distractions.
And that's everything you need to know. Follow these tips and your kids party will be good to go! Don't forget to secure Non-Stop Kids for your kids party.
