When you're planning a children's party, it can be confusing knowing just which entertainment option to book. Especially when there are so many options - from clowns to fire eaters to balloon-a-grams - which entertainer do you pick when you'd like a good selection of party games?
Our first recommendation would be to book an all-round entertainer. Many entertainment services have this option. Look for the Children's Entertainer option and you will find a package which includes activities such as Music, Games, Balloon Modelling, Magic, and Bubbles.
If you're on a budget, or would simply prefer a selection of party games rather than specialised activities, then professional Party Hosts are just the ticket for a successful celebration. Party Hosts lead the children in games for 1 to 2 hour events and are a great choice for a successful celebration.
Many people ask us if Mascots or Costumed Characters can lead party games. Due to health and safety issues such as overheating in the costume, and also the practical ability of moving around in some of the heavier costumes, mascots are rarely permitted to deliver games and activities. They are the perfect choice if you'd like your child's favourite character to make an appearance and meet and greet the guests. However, if you're looking for themed entertainment, then a Children's Entertainer (as described above) who can theme games and activities is what you're looking for.
Looking for children's party games and activities?
- Book a Children's Entertainer for a mix of specialist activities and party games (which can be themed if you choose)
- Or book a Party Host for general party games
- Book a Mascot or Costumed Character (consider these for meet-and-greet, walkabout appearances)
