Childrens party shows Melbourne
Do you have any fri3ends in the kids entertainment business? If so they may be able to save you some money and entertain your kids for you. This is not a stupid question as nowadays a lot of people work in the childrens entertainment business and doing entertainment for kids parties is now a big business! Long gone are days when you could get away with a bit of mess for your party entertainment.
The old fashioned days of baking cakes and scones and not much more are ancient history. These days kids want more and much, much more and they want something that is best described as being different.
In the 1960's, 1970's and 1980's a kids party may have been little more than back yard cricket. Well, not anymore! Today's children are heaps more demanding and they have options way beyond most older adults comprenesion. Karaoke parties compete with more common fare like discos, jumping castles, cartoon characters, kids face painting and fairy girls. Many kids are getting increasingly bored of magicians, clowns, ballon makers, rock climbing and other actvities seen not only at kids birthday parties, but also major events and street festivals. As the ideas challenge for childrens entertainment heats up, so too does the cost, although fortunately intense competition in the Melbourne kids party entertainment market place has helped to keep this lower. But before you splurge on one of the many options it is useful to ask a few questions of the entertainer you may be inviting into your home for your child's birthday party. Do they have working with childrens or other kids safety checks on hand? You may also be able to do a lot of the entertaining yourself or get a friend to do some for you as mentioned already.
Yes accidents do happen, and as far as being safe goes, kids parties have a high risk element. And that's even before you get the fire walkers in! At a normal kids party or event, the children run into one another, bash each other up, fight one another, try to kill one another, crash into walls, and pretty much anything else either they can damage or that can damage them. Hospital emergency rooms are full of kids who have bashed or clobbered themselves up at parties. Then of course parties are a great time to write off a plate glass window or two! Yes the combination of high sugar food and a bit of excitement, laced with some coloured soft drink is a red hot package to get the kids bouncing off the walls and through the windows.
So in terms of the entertainer, the last thing you want is even more danger for the children. If you have a cooking party, it is wise to check that there are few if any allergenic foods on hand. It's not a good look if you kill young Joshua with a peanut butter sandwich. It may also pay to put such a warning on your invitations so that parents of the susceptible kids are also warned as to the potential risks. Then there's the activity parties, like paint ball, sumo wrestling, horse riding or football. All such things run the risk of injury in one form or other. Obviously risk is something that cannot be eliminated from life itself, but the question you may wish to ask, is should you be adding risk to your next kids party when all you want is a smoothly run event to keep the children entertained. Telling a parent a child has been trampled to death by a horse is not a good call, so there are some things that should automatically be excluded from your wish list in terms of kids party entertainers and entertainment.
Lowest risk ideas in Melbourne.
While lack of danger sounds like lack of excitement, this is not alays the case. Even a game of pass the parcel is exciting for kids and it is about as low risk as it gets. However wrapping up things is never easy. Yes, low risk does not always mean boring. Perhaps the ultimate lowest risk activity for a kids birthday party is a board game or similar, but board game often means bored game, so is not usually a good choice at a party. However unless a kid has a fit of rage when losing and kills an opponent by throwing something at them or punching them out, you are probably safe! Computer and video games are also fairly safe, but the problem is having enough controls or consoles for all the kids at the party. Fairies, magicians and other entertainers are probably also classed as low risk, as with these sorts of activities, the children are mainly watching or interacting as in yelling and screaming, but not much else, as opposed to doing, which means they are not doing anything likely to get themselves injured. Besides the activities themselves, party food is also a very high risk activity. If not for the risk of allergic reactions, the sugar hit the kids get often pushes some over their normal activity limits which may result in hyperactivity, sugar highs and accidents that normally wouldn't occur. It's for this reason that food should be considered in terms of party risk. A number of fast-food chains, including the famous hamburger stores who do kids birthday parties are aware of these risks and they entertain the children to the last minute before remembering to feed the kids. They send them home with blue ice-cream cake, that makes most kids fly for hours after!
BY the time the kids react to this poison, they are in mum's and dads's car on the way home and it is the parents who are stuck with the problem of a chemically hyperactive and uncontrollable kida. Use this well known fact to your own advantage. Feed kids the rubbish food at the very end!
Reptile Party in Melbourne, Kids reptile show party options.
It's often thought that scaly creatures are dangerous. Everone has seen movies about killer pythons, crocodile rescuers and deadly snakes. However this is not the reality in most cases. Most reptiles are small, not venomous and rarely bite. Better still they love to be handled by kids as they like the feel of warm hands and the intellectual stimulation it brings to them. After all they sit around in boxes most of the time. However in Melbourne, reptile party shows are a common option, not just because of safety, but also because the weather in Melbourne if often wet and not conducive to outdoor activities. They are as safe as the party options come and bites are so rare as to be treated as highly unlikely. On the rare occasion a kid gets bitten, you simply wipe the spot of blood off and say sorry to the child. Most likely they will boast about their alleged wound as if it is a badge of honour. Either way, the kids will have the time of their life. There are many great reptile parties options across Victoria. Also if you want to play a practical joke on a child's parent, a reptile party will be a great opportunity for you to do so. You see when the mum or dad comes to your place to pick up the child, you greet them at the door and tell them their child just died from snakebite! After they nearly die from a heart attack, you tell them you were just kidding!
