Christmas party entertainment is super important when children are planning to attend your event. This is the time of year parents and kids can be together outside of a more typical birthday party celebration.
Don't get me wrong, birthday parties are awesome fun. But there is something about Christmas parties that's magical in it's own way. For a lot of adults, Christmas time harkens back to our youths when we enjoyed hot chocolate on cold snowy days or got outdoors to go sledding and build snowmen. It's a beautiful time of nostalgia and comforting memories.
Now, as adults we want to share something similar with our children. While we may have our own Christmas traditions, enjoying Christmas party entertainment as a family event or as part of our company's annual party is special and exciting.
Whether you're hosting a company Christmas party or a family Christmas party, you need entertainment. The average party will last two hours and often longer than that for private parties. This is, after all, the last time for everyone to wrap up the year before they usher in the New Year.
So make it fun!
Here are some ideas for your Christmas party entertainment:
Hire a reputable Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus for your corporate party. Great photo opportunities for parents to get their kids picture with Santa. This always makes parents go "aaawwwwee".
For a private party, get an uncle or older cousin to dress the part of Santa. This is sure to get laughs for everyone!
Set up a photo booth for adults and kids to get silly putting on crazy glasses and hats. Everyone loves silly photos of themselves and a photo booth is a memorable way to capture this joy.
Provide an arts and crafts area for entertainment. Kids love decorating and cookies or other small projects are engaging and creative. This gives children something to do that can be crafty, tasty and delightful because they get to take home their creation.
Get a balloon artist for your party. Hooray Balloons Kids Entertainment provides holiday entertainment for Christmas parties both corporate and private. Kids get a balloon of their choice so they can run around and play with their friends. A balloon animal is another great giveaway at your holiday party, too.
Hire a face painter for another cool way to engage kids at your party. The child's face can be painted after you've taken all the photos you like with Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves. You get the clean before photos and the kids get to choose what design they want on their face. While their being painted you can chat with colleagues or family at your event. Hooray Balloons Kids Entertainment of Vallejo can help you with your face painting needs, too.
Lastly, if you have children age 5 and older they may be very excited to participate in a balloon twisting workshop. The workshop is an awesome way to engage kids with lots of colorful, pre-blown balloons they learn to twist into a few easy designs. Once the workshop "teaching" part is done, kids twist up whatever their hearts desire. This is absolute madness in a controlled way allowing children to be creative, inspired while promoting self confidence.
Whatever you decide for your Christmas party entertainment, make it fun, engaging and memorable. These events are particularly special in children's lives since they'll remember sharing in wonderful experiences.
