Children’s Entertainment Ideas that are Perfect for Weddings

While children’s parties might be the preferred type of celebration, weddings are a pretty close second. Especially when it comes to chidren’s entertainment. Mr Stix is a professional children’s entertainer, that has won the Children’s Entertainer of the Year Award. His skills cover all types of events, occasions and celebrations, including weddings. As a result, this is a guide to children’s entertainment ideas that are perfect for weddings.

Children at weddings

While weddings are special occasions, there’s no doubt that the vast majority of wedding planning goes into the ceremony and the function with the adult guests in mind. After all a celebration of true love isn’t really focused on children. But not providing any children’s entertainment means they will be more likely to get bored and misbehave, and this will have a knock on effect on your adult guests enjoyment of the wedding. So if you really want to get hitched without a hitch, simply hire a children’s entertainer. This will give your young guests something to look forward to and something to keep them engaged.

Play areas

In addition to hiring a fantastic children’s entertainer, you can also consider creating a zone for children to play. This can be a great way for children to enjoy themselves throughout your evening function. It also means they will be less likely to get bored, and get under the adults feet. As a result, the children and the adults can enjoy themselves.

Other Activities

If you need something extra or ongoing to help the children stay entertained and involved in the wedding, you can:

  • provide a disposable camera for your little guests to take photos of your wedding
  • provide children with a goody bag with activates and colouring to help them stay occupied

My First Blog

Hi, welcome to my first blog and thank you for having a look. It has been a non stop summer and we have just finished our summer season for the 7th year at Sunnysands Holiday Park in Barmouth North Wales. I am please to say we will be back performing new shows again from Easter 2018.

As this is my first blog let me tell you a little bit about me. I have been a professional entertainer specialising in children’s and family entertainment for over 17 years. We started just providing discos for parties such as weddings, birthdays and schools, which we still do.

But as the years have gone on we have presented more and more shows featuring a mix of high energy Magic, Music, Balloon Modelling and Comedy. Making us the all in one Children’s Show ideal for any occasion. In 2015 we were awarded British Children’s National Champions of the year.

It was fantastic to take part in and win. Each month in my blog I will try to give tips for any party you may be planning. My tips for this month is look into and book your entertainer before you confirm a venue and date. A good and popular entertainer can be hard to find so get there availability then look into your venue. October is fast approaching which means Halloween, so get booking to avoid disappointment.
