Review from the Brownie UnBirthday Party

Lauren Vivian (LOON) Review of the Brownie Un Birthday Party

I was so impressed. The girls had an amazing time.

Checkers kept things moving very well and got everyone involved.

We loved the jokes and magic.

I heard from parents that kids where very excited to tell them all about the party.

I had only found out Thursday that there have been some terrible people

dressing as clowns. I wasn’t sure how things would go but you are the

furthest thing from scary. This party ended up being very good timing.

Checkers made a lot of girls believe in magic.

Thank you again for everything.

I will be happy to keep promoting you to anyone who might need a

little Checkers in their party.
Best wishes for a safe and happy fall.

Checkers Entertainment Services Event Tips on a Small Budget

Need Some Help Putting An Event On A Small Budget?

Look no farther. Our tips can help you and  your team!

Rule Number 1  – Keep it Simple

The kids today don’t know how to be simple. It’s up to you to show them how to have fun without electronics and loud noise all the time.

Parade:

Have a parade with homemade musical props. We have square sticks of wood with the lids off juice bottles that make a clatter noise. Be creative: Wooden spoons old pot lids, bells, whistles.

Bubble Station:

We have big wands that make gigantic bubbles. Sometimes you may find them in a dollar store. At events we take at least 10 wands. Kids can come and go and play with bubbles. You will need two buckets.  One bucket is for the bubble wands and one other for bubble juice.

Our Secret Bubble Juice Recipe

  • 3 litres. of water (12 cups)
  • 1 cup dawn dish soap. (Yellow, orange or red works the best)
  • 3 – 4 tbsp glycerine

Make the night before

 

Streamers:

You can purchase streamers on sticks or streamers to fit on fingers. It’s a good idea to have a container that the streamers go back into, otherwise they disappear.  We take 10 streamers.

Music:

It’s very important that you have some summer fun music. But not so loud it blows your ear drums out. People have to talk, laugh and be able to communicate with music in the back ground. Someone in the group may be a musician or have a CD to play music.

Hoola Hoops and Hoopa Balls:

Where there is music people like to hoola hoop or bounce on hoopa balls. It’s a good idea to have a contained area that these props stay. We take 10 hoola hoops and 3 – 5 hoopa balls. Hoola hoops are great to make obstacle course.

Temporary Tattoos 

You will find temporary tattoos at party stores. They are so fun!!

Funky Hair Colouring:

Funky hair colour sprays are affordable. Each can cover 3 – 5 heads. Depending on how much spray you use per head.  We try to keep one colour per head otherwise it gets costly with multi colours.

 Punch Balloons:

Punch Balloons  can be purchased at the affordable party stores. These are just as much fun as sculptured balloons but more durable with the sun and wind in the summer.

“Winner” Ribbons/Bookmarks:

Buy ribbons for the all the children. When they participate in an activity give them a ribbon. In this way everyone goes home a winner.

Loot Bags:

Make your own with special surprises

Races:

  • Age appropriate who can run the fastest.
  • Shoe kicks – see who can kick their shoe the farthest.
  • Leap Frog Race
  • Three legged race
  • Sack race
  • Pie Eating Contest

 

The most important of the event is having fun together!!!!
