Party entertainment for children needs to accomplish two things: entertainment needs to be engaging and kids need to have a blast. These two elements are optimal for a memorable birthday party.
Ask yourself about the birthday parties you've been to in the past.
Now imagine you're invited to a birthday party and not much thought is given to the kids entertainment. These parties tend to drag on. They're okay for the adults, but the parents bringing children would love to see their kids having a blast!
You as the parent throwing the party want to hear how fabulous your event was, right. You don't want to hear it was a snooze fest.
You want your party to be memorable! When it's memorable, fun and engaging, you're perceived as a superstar within your circle of friends. Why? Because you know how to party!
There is an art to party entertainment for children yet it doesn't have to be expensive. Yes, the age of the child is a factor in how you'll entertain the group, but specifically you need a plan of action. A jumpy house is often the go-to entertainment. It doesn't require much set up or much thought. The expectation is the kids will jump around for a bit, have some fun and be tuckered out ready for the trip home.
In addition to a bouncy house, if you feel that's what you need to have, consider incorporating games for the kids to play. They don't have to be complicated or competitive. They should be interactive. Integrate games where skill isn't needed. And, reward the child with made up points or with a small prize.
So what kinds of party entertainment for children are available to you and your budget?
Sometimes, though, a venue isn't available. Now what? You have the option of a park, a friend's house, your parent's house or your own home. Whatever location you 're working with consider providing a jumpy house if that's what you like. And also consider offering professional entertainment.

Do some research on party entertainment for children before you have your party. This way you have engaging things for the kids to do. It's not much fun for kids to go to a party and without any focus for them.
