Invites are important; you need them to get your friends and family to come to your party.  Telling them is ok, but giving them a note card will insure you that they will not forget.    Most stores will sell note cards that have magic items or characters on them, however, the words on the card will already be wrote.  To really make your guests excited, consider making a custom made card.  I made a rabbit character you can use as a card, and you are free to type whatever you want on the inside.  Click the note card to customize it and place your place.

When it comes to food for your magic world of fun party, you should make the meals magic based or make the meals or snacks in a magical way.  For example, you can use Kool Aid Magic Twists because this Kool Aid looks one way but tastes like something else.  Out of all the kitchen tools available today, there is only one that screams magic for a magic party, and it is the Magic Bullet.  The Magic Bullet is great because it helps the party host make cool party foods like dips for chips and drinks like smoothies and juices.  The wonderful thing about the Magic Bullet is that it makes things fast; the host of the party can entertain everyone just by using it.  Even when the party of over, the device will still get plenty of use because it makes pasta sauces, and it chops veggies for pizzas and much more.  This device is ideal for a magic show birthday party.  Check out the Magic Bullet by clicking the link.

Setting up your table is not tough, but here is a video for those who might need help.

The entertainment and fun is what keeps everyone happy, and a party is not a party without some music.  Because it is a magic themed party, you will want magic theme songs like BOB’s Magic or Magic Carpet Ride by Steppinwolf.  There are lots of other songs with magic as a theme, so if you know some, feel free to leave a comment.

Besides music, other important things are needed to keep the party going, and because it is a magic world of fun party, magic tricks have to be involved.  Having one person do all the magic tricks is fun, however, everyone will have an even better time if each person had a trick of there own to do.  Here is how this should be done; each party guest gets a trick to do using everyday items from a magic book.  The host of the party should pick a trick and copy it using a copy machine and give a different copy to each guest.  Each party guest studies their trick and then performs it at the party.  Once the party is over, everyone can share the secrets to their trick or keep the secret to themselves.  There are lots of magic tricks book available, for this task, a book called Amazing Tricks With Everyday Stuff is the best choice, click the link to find out more.

After the magic show, there is no better way to finish up a magic world of fun party than watching a Harry Potter movie marathon.  Harry Potter fans will love this; you should also get some Harry Potter theme games for guests to get them hyped for the marathon.  The Harry Potter DVD with all the movies are available in the link.  The UNO cards, and 20Q, and the Scene It are also great for the party, but they are also great for general Harry Potter fans.

Magic show are hits at a kids party if you do them correctly and have the right tricks.  Stage presence is also important for anyone doing a magic show for kids, because you have to act a certain way to keep the kid’s happy during the show.  A party is an ideal place to test out your magic skills, and if you do a good job, the children will be begging for more once your show is over.

 

When you are doing to do a magic show for kids at a kids party, you have to look the part.  Sure, you can walk into the room wearing normal pants and a normal tee, but if you dress up a little, kids will be more excited to see your show.  You can go all out and wear a suit if you like, or you can take small pieces of a magician’s dress code and come up with your own style.  For example, you can dress like you normally dress and just put on a top hat or a cape.  Cool tees are also a good choice if it has some sort of magic theme item on it like a magic wand or a bunny rabbit.  Here is one of my designs featuring a bunny rabbit, feel free to change the text under the image if you want or the color of the tee, click the link to see it.

Choosing the tricks you are going to do for a crowd of kids is not tough, however, you just have to carefully pick the ones that they will understand.  Card tricks are cool to have when performing at a magic show for kids, but some kids may have a tough time following along when they have to remember a card in a deck.  Generally, the best magic tricks for kids are the ones where the magician makes something disappear or appear out of nowhere.  They also like prop based tricks that are big enough to see.  When a room or area is crowded, this is not good because kids will want to see everything the magician does on stage, so it helps to have big props to keep the kids in the back of the crowd happy.  Kids also like when they get to help out with the magic tricks, so be sure to included a few tricks like that in your show.

Nothing will make kids boo faster than a boring magician on stage, which is why you need to be exciting and have a bit of humor when you are performing.  When kids do not like something that will let you know, so practice before you do your show at the party.  Make sure you can do your tricks correctly without mistakes and practice on your speech during the show.  You will want to make the kids laugh a bit as well, so if you know a few jokes that related to a trick, use them, because the kids will enjoy your magic show even more. One of the best magicians who knows how to entertain kids is Lance Burton, check out how to does it.

When it comes down to it, there is nothing like watching the magic show live in person, and the best place to do it is by going to Vegas.  Vegas is the best option because there are magic shows everywhere featuring some of the best magicians.  Although Vegas is great, it is not the only option when it comes to kids, because if they love magic, finding a kids magician to perform is the simplest way to go.  Magicians like to perform for crowds, so the best place for a kids magician to perform is a school.  Getting the magic show for kids at school is as simple as running a fun raiser or talking to everyone is your community about having a special event for the kids at school.
