The age of the children at a birthday party is a factor in the planning of your birthday Party show. There will always be some variety of ages at most parties, especially those given for the very young. Many children who are in pre-school won't get the same out of a party as a child who is a bit older.
From four years old upwards the same tricks will capture their attention, but they will enjoy them for a different reason. They will like the fun but they will also begin to analyze the problem in their own small way. At six, school begins for many children, and with it a whole now kind of understanding. By eight, and nine and up the children are learning how to think, how to analyze, how to wonder.
A parent may call and explain that they think that their child is too old for the kind of party that a childrens entertainer will provide but a good entertainer will alter and adapt his routines and presentations so that it is suitable. Also the party games that the entertainer provides will suit children of all ages.
Children's entertainers will have a show especially put together for the older age bracket. The tricks will have been selected to bring out their thinking ability,to get them to be a part of the show, and perhaps, one day, to lead them into this great hobby. Many a youngster has earned his way thru college doing magic but of course, college is a long way off.
For the likes of the smaller ones, their interest span is short. The little ones have minds that are still forming, but these young people are eager for action, eager to see what's coming next, eager for change.
When children start school and reach the age of 9 or 10 then they are more interested in party games and winning the prizes that are given out. This is the same for both boys and girls so even though they may not be interested in a magic show they will still want a party of some sorts and a kids entertainer can supply this need.
So in summary there really is no minimum age or for that matter a maximum age as a professional entertainer will alter the birthday party details to suit the age range that he is going to entertain for. It may include some or all of the following: magic show, balloon animals, party music, bubble machine, party games, party bags, prizes and giveaways.
