It is a misconception that hiring child party entertainers is a waste of money but it is true that most parents think this way. When the planning for the party has zapped almost all of the budget that is set aside for this event, many parents often opt to drop the hiring of party performers because they think that with every other aspect of their party already so well planned for, what’s the worst that could happen in the absence of a juggler or magician at the party? Understanding the role that these performers play will help a great deal in the future.
- They are not there just to make the children laugh
When it all comes down to it, you may think that the primary role of the child party entertainers is simply to make the children laugh and to pass the time but the fact could not be further from the truth as this is another misconception that often grip the minds of parents, leading them down the wrong path and ultimately them deciding not to hire the performer.
The role of any child’s party performer is to give the children there a chance at seeing something they have never seen before, or to give them such a memorable experience that they will not forget it for the rest of their lives. Yes, performers are there to give new experiences to the children, experiences which they would not have otherwise been able to obtain had the parents not hire the child party performers.
- They are there to teach
From the perspective of the parent, you may think that all the children do while sitting in front of the child party entertainers is laugh and clap their hands every once in a while. What you don’t know however is that the children may be having the best time of their lives but they are also at the same time, learning vital life skills that they will no doubt be requiring later on in life!
When an interesting story is unfolding before their very eyes, performed by the child party entertainers, they are in fact training themselves how to pay attention for longer periods of time and also learn the language that the story is being told. Certain activities that the performer may have the children participate in might involve them improving on their hand-to-eye coordination.
- They are there to give you some breathing space
Despite your most well planned efforts, you will find yourself being overwhelmed at a certain point in the party and will no doubt feel way above your head. Sending the children to watch the performance by the performer will buy you some valuable time to regain your thoughts and maybe to put the finishing touches on the cake!.
