A good children’s entertainer is easy to spot, as long as you know what to look for. The skills and qualities include:

  • sense of humour
  • flexibility and adaptability
  • good memory skills
  • professionalism

Sense of humour

If your children’s entertainer isn’t all that funny, your children and guests will simply get bored, or be un-interested. A sense of humour can help settle nervous hosts, and instantly draw children and guests into the show. So make sure that you hire  a professional who know how to be funny.

Flexibility and adaptability

A great children’s entertainer wont just plan their at based on the children’s ages, they will make changes and adapt on the spot, depending on the reaction and involvement of the children. And if the theme of the party has changed, a good entertainer will be able to adapt there and then, and make changes to the show to suit the audience. When entertaining children, you need to be on the ball and on your toes. You cant simply memorize a script.

Good memory skills

Being able to remember children’s names and faces after only being told once is something that every children’s entertainer needs to be able to do. Using their names doesn’t just help children feel involved in the show, it also gets their attention and keeps them interested.


Being a children’s entertainer requires a certain degree of professionalism too. You need to choose someone who is professional throughout your interactions, and also professional on the job.
