How to find a Children’s Entertainer

When throwing a party for your child, getting the right entertainer should be a doddle if you know what you need and where to look.

Firstly you need an entertainer to suit the right age group.


If your little one is 1-2 years old, a baby sensory entertainer would be perfect or you could just throw a gathering in a soft play area and let the venue do the rest.


For children aged 3-4, party games can be a little difficult but are still do-able.  You could play pass the parcel or have a messy play in the garden or in a church hall or maybe a trip to a theme park like Peppa Pig World. Home parties are quite popular for this age group so you could do the entertaining yourself with a little music, a small battery-operated Bubble Machine, a light effect and a few little party games like musical bumps or sleeping lions.


For children aged 5 and over, a mini or larger disco party is perfect.  Any age lower than that and you will be wasting the entertainer’s talent and your money.

So, where to look?
