Entertainment Ideas for Toddlers’ Birthday Parties

Young children and toddlers can be quite a difficult age to organise a birthday party for. Here at Entertainers Worldwide we thought a useful guide for our recommended entertainment for toddlers’ birthday parties might come in handy, so here are our top suggestions of types of children’s entertainers for keeping toddlers amused…

Spark Face and Body Art

Spark Face and Body Art – Face Painters from Entertainers Worldwide.com

Face Painters

Hiring a face painter is probably the number one choice for entertainment for toddlers birthday parties as it is a form of entertainment that can run alongside other fun and games. A face painter will generally sit in one position as each child takes turns having their faces painted. Toddlers may be a little restless, but it is still a nice idea to make their day even more special. Just remember to ask a face painter how much time they need to accomodate all of the children.

Children’s / Kids Magicians

Hiring a children’s magician may not always be suitable depending on the age of your toddler, but they can still be very entertaining, and if you have children of all ages attending, they can provide entertainment for a few hours while you take time to amuse younger children or prepare food.

A children’s magician is specialised in performing magic tricks that are a little simpler and will also amaze children and get them involved too.


Hiring a puppeteer is a fantastic choice for toddlers as they are suitable for children of many ages. Watch children’s faces light up as characters come to life and act a little mischievous too! One thing to consider when hiring a puppeteer is how much space they will need for their set-up.


Most toddlers like clowns which makes them a popular choice for toddlers birthday parties. Hire a clown who will act silly in front of children and play tricks on the grown-ups! When you book, specify the age of toddlers that will be attending so that your chosen performer can match their routine and performance to their age. Some clowns even offer additional entertainment such as juggling or magic tricks.


Costumed Characters

Most toddlers have their favourite characters from movies or television shows. Costumed characters are a new craze that has taken off in a big way. Now you can hire Elsa from Disney’s Frozen, or someone dressed as Fireman Sam. Young children won’t be able to take their eyes off them as they mingle and play games with all of your little guests.

Balloon Modellers

Balloon modellers are great to keep toddlers and young children of all ages entertained. Some of the advantages of hiring a balloon modeller is that they will happily get older children involved too and provide children with a balloon model to take away with them. It is worth noting that some children are a little afraid of balloons, so if this is the case, always make sure you tell your chosen performer before booking.
