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 get the venue to do the rest.
For children aged 3-4, party games can be a little difficult but are still doable. You could play pass the parcel or try something like having a small group of mums and kids and set up some messy play in the garden or in a church hall or a trip to a theme park like Peppa Pig World. Home parties are quite popular at the age group so you could do the entertaining yourself with a little music, a bubble machine and a few little party games like sleeping lions.
For children age 5 and over a mini disco is perfect. Any age lower than that and you will be wasting the entertainers talent and your money.
