Bar & Bat Mitzvah Entertainment Ideas in CT, MA, RI, NH

March 11, 2015 kscope

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┬áin 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┬áis 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!
