Most important thing to remember when planning a child’s birthday party!

Plan ahead!  I get many last minute emails and phone calls where a parent is looking to schedule entertainment for a birthday party a few days before the actual party.  Now, I understand that there are sometimes circumstances such as another party entertainer cancelled or the party was planned as an outdoor party with an inflatable Thomas the Tank Engine Bounce House and now with rain and wind coming the train themed party needs to be moved indoors.  However, I also know that some people, especially those that are busy with work and children, and everything that goes along with that, will sometimes wait until the last minute.  Plan ahead, I recommend calling the performer you want before reserving the room or setting the time and date of your party.  Lots of times I get calls and the person on the other line says, “I have the room from 1PM to 4PM so I need you at 2PM.”  On a typical Saturday I will perform at 2, 3, or even 4 parties during the holidays.  While I might not be able to travel, setup, and be ready for 2PM, 3 or 3:30PM might be possible.  If the time and date where not already set with guests invited by the time I was contacted things could have been adjusted.  If your child is 4 or 5 and obsessed with trains and you are doing your absolute best to give them the “Train Party of their Dreams” don’t wait to the last minute.  Next year they may no longer be “into” trains, so give them the best party you can now, by planning ahead!  If you are set on hiring an entertainer for your child’s birthday party, be flexible, call early, and be willing to change the date or time if it means giving your child a party they will never forget!

I performed an Assembly Program today and my 4th Grade Teacher was in the audience!

What an exciting day!  This morning I performed for an Elementary School in New Jersey and in the audience was my 4th Grade Teacher (he is still teaching 4th grade), my Gym Teacher, and my Music Teacher all from my elementary school.  My old school was closed and knocked down many years ago and is still just a vacant lot but they are all in another school in East Rutherford, NJ where I grew up.  It was such a great experience to not only perform for close to 500 students (grades PK-4), but to have former teachers in the audience was an awesome honor!  I got to speak to each of them after the show and had some pictures taken which I will share when they are emailed to me!  People ask me all the time if I love what I do…I do!

Snidely & the B's

Halloween is a big deal in my family. We go wild with decorations, spooky lighting, and of course, HOMEMADE costumes. We love it. You can imagine my disappointment when my beloved first born child balked at wearing any kind of costume. No hats, no makeup, no capes, no tails, no weird shoes, nuthin. His first Halloween, he cried the entire time he had on his little monkey costume. His second Halloween, I got him a yellow shirt and drew a charlie brown zig-zag on it and called it a day. His third Halloween, he refused to wear anything but an orange shirt with a jack-o-lantern face on it. WHO IS THIS CHILD??

So along came Halloween #4.  I knew if I could come up with the right idea, that he would come around. Or…I hoped anyway.

I focused in on what he loves the most. Thomas & Friends. I thought,”What…
