Party Ideas seen by an Entertainer.
entertainer I have been performed at many
block parties and have seen many successful and
cool block party ideas.
Here are some
block party ideas to help make your block party a
Party Ideas #1 Kid crowd control - To
insure every kid on the block receives a balloon or
gets their face painted, I would suggest giving each
house on the block a badge/wrist bracelet that
identifies the kid as living on this block. This will
give these kids a special priority, thus eliminating
kids that attend from other neighborhoods. If time
remains, the entertainer can entertain kids without
Party Ideas #2 Sell extra wrist bracelets
- Block parties are a community event, people who have
no kids invite family and friends with children. These
children now have to be calculated into the cost of
the block party. For these families that normally do
not have children, sell them wrist bands. This will
help calculate the number of kids at the block party
and offset entertainment and prize expenses.
Party Ideas #3 Invite local law
enforcement or fire department to your block party.
Most local government agencies can provide free
community education such as, D.A.R.E., Kids finger
printing, police dog education, fire safety, home
safety, plus they can bring vehicles for children to
inspect. This will make your block party educational
Party Ideas #4 Frozen T-shirt Game. The
idea of the game is to take a folded frozen T-shirt,
unfold the T-shirt and put it on. This game requires 5
T-shirts. I suggest that you find a local company that
would like to donate some T-shirts (free advertising
for the company). Soak the T-shirt in water and fold.
Place freezer paper between shirts and freeze rock
The Game -
Have five contestants unfold the frozen T-shirt and
put it on. They can do anything to defrost the
T-shirt, BUT must be done in the street. If a barbecue
kettle is available, then roasting a T-shirt is legal.
You will be surprised how creative people will become
trying to unfold a frozen T-shirt.
Party Ideas #5 In planning your block
party activities, remember to make provisions to
recycle all of the materials that are normally
collected by the City. So, when the fun is over and it
is time to clean up, recyclables are already bagged.
are just a couple of block party ideas that I have
learned from balloon entertaining. I hope you can use
these ideas to have a successful neighborhood block
Have a lot of
kids on your block? Consider the balloon
show which entertains the whole block party all
in 45 minutes.
