kids entertainment

There are a whole host of options for kids entertainment in Belfast so there is something to suit every child. Makes and Bakes run arts and crafts workshops that are great fun for large events or children’s birthday parties.

If you are in the midst of planning a party for your child it can feel like a lot of work and organisation. As a parent, you want to ensure that your child and their friends have a fantastic time. So, we’ve come up with five tips to help you plan a fun and stress-free kids entertainment in Belfast.

Choose Your Venue

When it comes to throwing a children’s party in Belfast or anywhere else, the venue can really make or break the whole shindig. In Belfast, you’ve got some great options like We Are Vertigo, Streamvale Farm, the Ice Bowl, laser quest at the Ozone, or even Belfast Zoo. These places offer super fun and interactive experiences that will keep the kiddos entertained and excited the whole time.

If those spots aren’t your jam, you could always go for a fully equipped venue like a leisure centre or hall, or just have the party at your own place. That way, you can bring in some fantastic kids entertainment to keep the little ones busy and having a blast!

Plan the Activities and Kids Entertainment

Having a big group of kids can be a handful, but games and entertainment are the key to keeping everyone out of trouble! You can stick to the classics like musical statues, musical chairs, and pin the tail on the donkey – if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, right? But if you want to take things up a notch, think about hiring a magician, face painter, or balloon artist. And who doesn’t love a bouncy castle? Or, you could make the entertainment the star of the show and get everyone involved with an art party. Makes & Bakes offers creative craft workshops like bath bomb making and slime parties. So, get ready to have a blast at your next party! 

Come Up With a Theme

Kids absolutely love going all out when it comes to parties! Having a theme can make the celebration even more special and memorable. Imagine your child looking back on their superhero-themed 7th birthday with fondness for years to come. You can easily order decorations, themed cups, and plates online to completely transform the party venue. Getting creative with the decorations and party favours can add an extra exciting touch to the event. Consider adding themed entertainment, such as hiring Disney princess characters to make an appearance.

At Makes and Bakes, we offer themed party workshops, like our cupcake decorating activity. Your child can choose the design, making it truly personalised. We can even create a cupcake themed after your pet!

Plan Kid-Friendly Food

Food is always a big deal at parties! It’s important to have a good selection of tasty and kid-friendly options for the little guests. Finger foods, colourful snacks, and a themed cake are sure to be a hit. If you’re having the party at a venue, see if they provide catering or if you need to handle the food yourself.

Add Party Bags

Party bags are a staple at kids’ parties and are always a hit as guests head home. Fill them with small toys, sweets, and other goodies. You can even personalize the party bags to match the theme, making them extra fun.

Concluding the Tips for Kids Entertainment

With these tips in mind, you’ll have no problem planning fantastic kids entertainment that will be a hit with both the children and their parents. You’re sure to create wonderful memories for your child and their friends.
