Trying to decide on a great form of entertainment for a party or event that you are planning can be a very tricky affair, especially if that event is for children. A lot of party games like pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey and the Piñata are fun for a few minutes, but then they are quickly over, and often times, everyone at the party doesn't even get a turn. A good way to get everyone entertained could be to hire a face painter, a balloon twister, or a magician. All of those would be good options for party entertainment. However, what if you could get all three of those qualities out of just one entertainer? That's right, I'm talking about a clown.
Clowns are fun, engaging, and hilarious entertainers that are fantastic at adapting to new situations and new groups of people and children. Most of them have the ability to create balloon animals, which would be great for any party because it would allow the children to express themselves by getting a balloon version of their favorite creatures or characters, consequently making them more confident in being in a social situation. They could also get hats or wands made. Many clowns also do face-painting, so the children and even the adults could get their faces painted like their favorite animal or like their favorite character, like a Minion from 'Despicable Me.' Clowns even do magic! Now, they don't do as much magic, or as in-depth magic has a professional magician would do, but the magic that they do is simple, funny, and goes over great with kids. Trick such as pulling the long, tied together, colored scarves out from their sleeves or anything involving a rubber chicken is guaranteed to garner great laughs from the children at your party.
Now, I know what you're thinking: you can't get a clown because children find clowns scary. Well, many times the reason children find clowns scary is because of scary depictions of clowns in cartoons or movies, but actually clowns aren't scary at all! Clowns are kind, engaging, and will absolutely not be abusive to anyone. Clowns are only interested in having fun and making sure everyone they're entertaining has fun as well. Professional clowns are also aware that clowns have a stigma about them, so they know when to back off on a child that's showing fear.
A clown is a great addition to any child's party because they are extremely versatile. If, for example, you hire the clown for a child's birthday party, they can do their performance in front of the whole group of children, with the birthday boy or girl as the main attraction and “assistant.” Alternatively, if it is a big party, such as a family reunion with children peppered throughout the venue, the clown can roam around the party and give more personal performances. Whatever way you decide to go, you and your guests are guaranteed to have a fun and unforgettable experience if you hire a clown for your next children's party.
