When you’re considering hiring a DJ for your children’s party, this can often turn out to be more challenging than you first expected. And it’s not because you don’t have good party DJs. It’s because kids can be easily influenced by their peers. You know that when you’re hosting a party, you need to make sure to get the right entertainment for guests. And when the guests are children, the entertainment needs to be both appropriate for their age and a lot of fun at the same time.
Involve the kids
If you want to make sure that the party is a success, make sure that you involve the kids. We always advise parents to simply ask their children about the type of activities they would like to have. This allows the kids to be actively involved with the arrangements for the party. One thing is for sure; no matter how much you love music or think you know your kids, they have their own personal tastes regarding music, as well as their peers. So, letting your child help choose the songs is a great idea to make sure the party is a hit.
Hiring a professional and experienced children’s party DJ will not only have the right great music, but is one of the things that will bring any party to life, when done with the kids in mind, and engaging and interacting with the children. What you can do, as a parent, is to make the necessary arrangements related to the dance floor and removing all the furniture that can be in the way. Try to create as much free space as you can, and don’t forget to remove all the floor mats from this area.
Make sure to book the right type of DJ
Ensuring that your booking is specifically for a Children’s Party DJ is vital. Kids parties are always different, because they’re a completely different crowd. If the DJ isn’t used to kids parties, or doesn’t interact with the children properly, it could potentially be disastrous. Also, make sure that you ask the DJ about additional activities and party games that they plan for the party. This can also help to make it even better for the kids. One thing to pay attention to is the age of your child. The average 9 or 10-year-old will enjoy games like the pass the parcel. However, young teenagers might think this to be too childish a game.
Break the ice
A lot of children can often be quite shy and reserved initially. And you need to make sure they take the most out of the party you arranged. Again, this is where an experienced children’s party DJ will shine. Ensuring to connect with the children, and play appropriate upbeat music that the kids can relate to, helps to encourage the children to the dance floor. You can even throw some goodies in the crowd. Everything counts to make them come to the dance floor and enjoy the party.
And if the budget allows, why not consider including something extra special to your party. Add a little bit of drama and wonderment to your event, with a professional magician, and ensure that all your guests, young or old, will be truly amazed!
