For older children aged 8 and up, finding something novel and different for their parties can be a real challenge. With my workshop parties teaching Magic, Balloon Modelling and Circus Skills you are providing something new, exciting, fun and different that engages the children and equips them with a new skill. All three workshops have been successfully conducted for children aged up to 16 years old and are suitable for both boys and girls of all abilities. In order to ensure the maximum potential for individual tuition, I recommend that each workshop is limited to fifteen children.
Children really do love learning a new skill and also love a challenge. So if you are looking for something the children haven’t done before then these workshops are a great option. Use my enquiry page to find out more information and obtain a price for your next event.
MAGIC WORKSHOP: 60 MINUTES
This workshop begins with the children experiencing cool close-up magic for 15 minutes, right under their noses. This encourages interaction and fun whilst helping me understand what interests them and assess their abilities. During the workshop I will show and teach the children up to six different tricks that they each get to keep at the end of the party. They will learn illusions with playing cards, rope and other household objects which will amaze their friends with appearances, vanishes and even the levitation of an object. The price of the workshop includes a free magic kit for every child plus a ‘Magic Hands of Mystery’ DVD for the birthday child, teaching many more magic secrets. This saves you having to worry about party bags. This workshop is suitable for parties held at home.
BALLOON MODELLING WORKSHOP: 60 MINUTES
At the start of the workshop I show the children all the fun models they will create as well as a few bigger ones. Everyone will learn how to make a colourful butterfly, a bizarre hat and a cute dog. Once these are completed, and if time allows, we will move onto more complex models and special requests. At the end of the workshop the children get to take home everything they have made. The birthday child receives all the cool models made at the start of the workshop to keep as well! It really is a spectacular and colourful sight, watching the children leave the party with armfuls of balloons. This workshop is really hands on and particularly suited to budding artists and creative children. Although enjoyable for both boys and girls, this workshop works particularly well at an all girls’ birthday party. This workshop is suitable for parties held at home.
CIRCUS SKILLS WORKSHOP: 60 MINUTES
For budding clowns and active children my Circus Skills Workshop is a real winner. The full energetic hour starts with a demonstration of all the different types of juggling and circus skills the children will try to master. The children will learn plate spinning and juggling with bean bags and rings. At the end of the workshop the birthday child will receive their choice of a Juggling Bag Set, Juggling Ring Set or a Plate Spinning Set. Instead of party bags for the children, why not give them a Spinning Plate Set to take home? These can be supplied at a reasonable additional cost. This workshop requires the party be held in a hall or large open space to cater for flying objects! Just in case…I do have Public Liability Insurance and thankfully have never had to use it!
