Looking for ways to keep kids AND adults busy at your upcoming mitzvah? We’ve worked dozens! Here are a few things we’ve seen work exceptionally well:
Throw a kids’ cocktail hour
While the adults are all chatting over a drink, throw a “kids’ hour” by bringing them into a separate room for more kid-oriented activities and entertainment.
- Temporary tattoos are a hit, and won’t be as overwhelming as face paint in pictures! Flash tattoos are especially nice, since they’re a bit trendier and dressier
- Glitter looks and hair art can help guests switch their looks from the formal feeling of the clothes they wore to the synagogue bar mitzvah to a more fun and festive look to wear at the party.
- Karaoke is a super-fun add-on to any DJ, and if you’re planning on having the kids’ hour in the main ballroom/dining room, this is perfect because the DJ won’t need to change anything.
- Are you handing out anything to guests like accessories, gifts, or glow sticks? Our costumed servers can dress up to any theme or color scheme! (Plus, they’re multi-talented artists, so you can combine costumed serving with something like temporary tattoos or glitter looks for a higher value experience.)
Go with entertainment both kids and adults will love
While everyone is waiting for dinner, socializing, and the DJ is spinning, there are a few types of entertainment that everyone will love
- DJ in the main room is a must-have. Many families like mixing it up and using both klezmer performers and a traditional DJ, but the nice thing is any mitzvah DJ can probably mix it up themselves.
- Caricatures are the most unique and memorable activity you can have at any party! Loved by everyone from toddlers to teens, and adults and beyond
- Stilt walkers are a great way to distribute hors d’oeuvres, mock-tails, or anything else! Amaze guests with this little switch-up. (You’ll have to pay for waitstaff anyway, so why not pay a little extra for something truly amazing?)
End the night with a blast
After dinner, getting people onto the dance floor can be a little tricky. Mix it up a notch:
- Turn off any white lights and bring out the black lights! Convert any temporary tattoo stations to UV face/body painting stations. Now that most of the pictures are done, it’s time to let loose! (And no, it won’t stain anyone’s clothing.)
- Want to create a larger-than-life experience? Our foam party technicians can create a giant bubble-filled dance party to close out the evening with an unforgettable experience!
