Plan Ahead for a Party to Remember
With Autumn term underway, Christmas will be here before you know it. Now is the time to book the entertainment for the Christmas party.
We are still clearing up the sand from the summer holidays, but already the days are getting shorter. The shops are full of Halloween gear, and next thing you know, they will be gearing up for Christmas.
The school Christmas party is one of the highlights of the year for kids of all ages, but it takes plenty of organising. If you plan on booking a children’s entertainer in Essex, you need to act fast, as this is probably their busiest time of the year.
Here, we take a look at some of the best entertainment ideas, both traditional and more modern, to make the party go with a bang.
What could be more Christmassy than a visit from Santa? One of the biggest questions that comes up is at what age Santa ceases to be “appropriate.” The short answer is that kids right up to year six will love a visit from the big guy, and even if some of the older ones are becoming a little cynical, Christmas brings out the best in everyone, and most will go along with the magic for the benefit of the younger ones.
Or it could be that they realise that casting doubt on the great man will not reap them any rewards in terms of a gift!
Kids of all ages love a disco. Experience has shown that it usually works best if you split it by age ranges. So for primary school children, that means one disco for the infants and another for the juniors.
A professional children’s entertainer will know exactly what music to play, with just the right blend of the very latest chart toppers and party classics that you will remember from your own childhood. Agadoo never grows old!
No party is complete without games. Again, the professionals will have all the necessary equipment and tricks up their sleeves – quite literally if you opt to factor in a bit of magic.
For younger children, balloons are always guaranteed to raise a smile, along with traditional favourites such as pass the parcel, musical statues and all those other games that have stood the test of time.
Taking inspiration from the TV
Those reality TV talent shows have a lot to answer for. Today’s kids are hooked on programmes like The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent – and if the truth be told, so are the parents.
Getting the competitive juices running is a great way to add some spice to the school disco, with dance contests and X-Factor type competitions. But be warned, it won’t just be the children who are competing. Special rounds for parents and teachers often prove to be the most popular and entertaining of all, so get practicing now!
Hire a professional for a party to remember
Organising a school Christmas party takes time, energy, experience and equipment. For the best possible party, it really pays to bring in an expert. That way, you are guaranteed an event that the kids, teachers and parents will all be talking about well into the new year.
