How To Be A Successful Kids Entertainer

Children’s party entertainers are becoming more and more popular recently, and with so many people offering services for halloween costumes entertaining little party guests, being successful is often challenging. In order to get ahead of your competition, follow some of these helpful tips.
Get To Know Kids
Knowing what’s popular right now with children and getting to know what sort of entertainment the average child longs for at their party is crucial to running a successful kids entertaining business. There is no point in dressing up as a dated cartoon character or playing games that have gone out of fashion, as the children will simply lose interest and won’t want you to come to their party again. If you dress up as a popular television or movie character to entertain your little customers, it’s good to be up to date with current trends in kids movies and television shows, so you know what’s in demand for entertainment. You might find that you need to change character regularly to keep with current trends, so find out where you can get cheap costume hire or search online auction sites for cheap costumes for sale.
Act Like A Kid
It’s a well known fact that kids think adults are boring. If you’re working as a children’s entertainer, you’re probably already quite low down on the scale of boring-ness. However, in order to really capture the attention and engage with the children you entertain, you should really get down to their level and understand them. That doesn’t mean that you have to run around screaming, throw tantrums when you can’t get what you want, or sulk irrationally – but do talk to them about kids television shows, engage in playing with them, and don’t ask them boring adult question such as what they want to be when they grow up.
Bring Gifts
Everybody loves gifts. So if you’re going to a children’s birthday party to entertain them and their guests, it would be rude not to bring a gift for the birthday boy or girl. The gift you take doesn’t have to be large or expensive, but a simple token gift or even a bag of jelly sweets is bound to make the lucky recipient happy. If you’ve dressed up as a well known character for the party, take a gift that complements your theme – for example a Frozen doll, Spiderman action figure or a Disney Princess makeup set. Remember the other guests too – bringing a share bag of sweets for them all to share, or party bags will go down well.
