New York birthday magic can make your tot’s next special day, one to remember. Birthday parties of all kinds can be magical for kids, but have you thought about adding some real magic to your party with an actual magician? A magic-themed birthday party can be tons of fun, and kids might learn some magic tricks, too. At Kids ‘N Shape, we love helping families have the best possible birthday party. Here are tips if you are thinking about adding magic to your party.
Hire a New York Birthday Magic Pro
Many professional magicians have experience working at birthday parties. Look online or ask around to find a magician that people trust and recommend, then call them to talk about your ideas for your party. They should find a way to incorporate the birthday child into the show, maybe as a magician’s assistant. Some magicians may be willing to teach the kids a trick or two after performing a magic show – think about how exciting that could be for your guests! Be aware that younger kids have a limited attention span, and make sure your hired magician knows the age range of guests so they can plan the best show.
Kids ‘N Shape also provides magician costumed characters to enhance your magic party.
New York Birthday Magic Pro Game Plans
Before or after the magic show, make sure to plan some magic-themed games to get everyone in the mood. Here are some simple ones to try:
- Pin the Tail on the Magic Rabbit, or Pin the Wand on the Magician
- Toss small stuffed rabbits into a magician’s hat
- Have a “House of Cards” contest to see who can build the tallest tower with playing cards
You can also make use of the great activities at Kids ‘N Shape – just give them a magical twist! Use magic-themed items for a fun relay race (like a deck of cards, a wand, or colorful scarves). Use silk scarves to enhance a jumping contest, or tell kids the ball they’re using for dodge ball has magical powers.
No party is complete without some fun themed food. For your magic party, consider making cookies in the shape of a magician’s hat, “bunny tail” popcorn balls, or “disappearing dip” – put out an empty bowl and tell kids it disappeared.
You do not have to make any special food for a party at Kids ‘N Shape, because we offer pizza for kids and optional extra treats like snow cones, popcorn, or cotton candy. If you are taking advantage of our great food options, you could give them fun magic-themed names to fit into the party atmosphere. What about “Presto Pizza,” “Mystery Fluff,” or “Tricky Popcorn”?
There are many different party favor options that would go well with a magic-themed birthday party. You could give each guest a small magic trick to take home, or even a deck of cards. Wrap each favor in a colorful silk scarf for an extra special gift. We also offer goody bags at Kids ‘N Shape if you need a more convenient option.
