Extra Fun Birthday Party activities for children of all ages, featuring 1 or more of the following:
Birthday Magic & Puppet Show around 45 minutes of laughter and interactive fun. For older kids I skip the puppets and do more "cool" magic. For younger kids (8 &under) it's a mix of comedy magic, puppets with ventriloquism & gags. I do shows for ages 3 to 10, customized to the ages. It's very interactive & the birthday child is the star magicians assistant. See the demo video!
Quick Caricatures (Cartoon Portrait Drawings). He draws 15-20 kids an hour. It's a great permanent gift for all the party guests - much better than inexpensive plastic toys that will get thrown out. AND the kids and adults enjoy watching the drawings being made. (Click here for more info)
"I wanted to thank you for a FABULOUS show at Ceci's party on Sunday! The kids absolutely loved it and we couldn't have been more pleased with your performance. Incredible that you were able to keep the attention on 40 kids of varying ages for a full hour!"
45 MINUTE MAGIC AND PUPPET SHOW: $250
QUICK CARICATURE DRAWING: $35 per 15 minutes
Please note: I have a $250 minimum fee for birthdays, regardless of the choice of activities or amount of time.
The 45 minute show!
I make the birthday child the co-star! The show is geared to the age group of kids. It can be an all magic show, or an all puppet show, but usually it's a mix of both - it's up to you. For kids 9 and older I usually don't do the puppets and do more "cool" magic, though I still do a lot of comedy. When most kids are 8 and under the show is basically a comedy show that uses magic, puppets and gags to create non-stop laughter. Show fee $250.
Most birthday clients have me add caricature drawing after the show.
Quick caricature drawing!
After the 45 minute show most clients have me do:
Quick caricature drawings of all the kids. $35 per 15 minutes. CLICK HERE for more info on party caricatures.
I can do the drawings while the kids eat, sing, play, or do any other activities you have for them. Let me know how many kids are invited so I can estimate how long caricatures will take, but to give you an idea, I draw around 15-20 kids an hour. Rather than setting a specific amount of time in advance, I charge for however long it takes, every party works out differently.
Quick party caricatures
15-20 kids drawn per hour !
Makes a great permanent gift.
Party Caricatures info: The caricatures drawings, if I do them, can be done for any age, and don't worry, I know the young ones won’t sit still, I'm used to it! The parents might want to have a photo on their cell phone to work from in case the child is a baby or simply can't or won't pose for me. Caricatures are great because it's a permanent gift for all the kids and caricatures at a birthday are unique - not something done at everyone else's party. I draw around 15-20 kids an hour on 11" by 14" paper. Many people get them framed. You can see more examples of caricatures on my other website: http://thecaricatureartist.com .
Details: I arrive roughly around 10 minutes before my scheduled time to set-up so I'm ready to go at the time you scheduled me. Most people have me start the birthday magic & puppet show 15-30 minutes after the party officially starts so all the kids are there, but that's up to you. I can perform indoors or out, any size or type of space is OK, but if it's a really small or awkward space, let me know when you book me. For the show itself, I prefer to have the kids sitting on the floor close together, about 3 feet in front of me. It's best if the kids don't eat during the show. Outdoor shows need to be in a fully shade level area.
