Clown school: 15 children attended clown school in honour of my daughter's 9th birthday (I have a clown business called Home Made Parties) They all received matching book bags complete with their own magic tricks/joke cards, to be performed in a clown performance later, decorated their own colour coordinated clown hats, got into their own costume, designed how they wanted their clown faces painted (then had them painted according to their designs), learnt balloon modelling, had magic trick lessons then gave a performance. Lunch and afternoon tea break were included before being presented with a red clown nose on graduation.
What People Ate
each little clown had a lunch order - they ticked their selection on the return slip RSVP
What People Drank
milk in milk bottles
clown school cupcakes, toffee apples, apples (for school) clown cake pops (choc)
custom polymer clay clown magnets, red jelly beans in jars, plus each child got to keep their clown school book bag, magic trick and clown costume.
Activities / Games
The children arrived and were told the clown rules, they then got their own clown school book bags from their own hooks. Inside was a colouring sheet, a face template for designing their clown faces, a personalised joke card, a magic trick chosen for each clown (child) a clown school timetable and balloons for balloon modelling.The children decorated their clown party hats, got changed into their own clown costumes, designed their clown faces then had them painted on according to their design. We then had a break for lunch - which the children chose themselves from the 'lunch order menu' which was their RSVP slip. Then they had balloon modelling classes, learnt their magic tricks and practised their jokes. They then gave a magic performance, and got presented with a red clown nose on 'graduation'. We sang happy birthday to the birthday girl, and FINALLY got to eat all that yummy clown school party food.
One of the little girls went home and asked her mother if she could come to clown school EVERY saturday
a little too much....
