Top 10 Party Tips:
Below are the top ten kids party tips. Can I just say this, honestly, even if you do not book my magic show, please feel free to phone me on 3300 1741 if you are having a kids party. It can be a stressful occasion if this is your 1st big party for your child. I have entertained at 1000′s of kids birthday parties and I am truely happy to share my thoughts with you. Whether you hire me or not, I want your kids party to run smoothly, I want it to be a success, I want to ease the stress of your party.
Below the top ten party tips I have included some further information that I send out to anyone who books my magic show. I send this information out with their best interests at heart. All the party tips are gained from real life, on the ground kids party experience and the party tips are only given to help make their party the best stress free party ever.
1. Get noticed
Tie a bunch of balloons to the mailbox or front door so it’s easy for your guests to find the party.
2. Don’t over do it
Don’t over do the length of the party. 1.5 – 2 hours is usually enough.
3. Protect your pets
I suggest that if you have pets, they be placed in a safe area away from the children. With all the noise and excitement animals can be unpredictable.
4. Send invitations early
Send out invitations and book the entertainment EARLY. Other children also have a hectic social calendar and time slots are limited
5. Get kids active asap
As the kids arrive direct them to a game or activity to break the ice.
6. Prepare the child for the party
Discuss good manners and acceptable behaviour with your child before for the party. How to greet guests and accept presents and what areas are off limits (ie bedrooms)
7. Get a cardboard box for presents
Get a big decorated cardboard box and as the children arrive, put the presents they bring safely into it, so that they may be opened AFTER the party. This way you will know who brought what, so that ‘thank you letters’ can be sent. This also ensures that nothing gets lost or broken.
8. Get help from parents
Use parents who stick around as party assistants. They’ll love to participate and you’ll love it too.
9. Food, drinks, etc.
Don’t serve food, drinks or lollies once the magic show has begun
10. Be ready for the cake
Always know where the camera and matches/lighter are (for the cake)
