Testimonials

Hello, Yabadoo! Just wanted you to know how much the family enjoyed Mystica’s show in National Arboretum Canberra. It was AWESOME! Ethan enjoyed every second of it. We got to spend time and catch up with other parents while the children were busy getting entertained. Mystica did advanced tricks that even I couldn’t figure out! It was money well spent and the memories you made with us are priceless. Thank you! – Adrienne C., O’Connor 1928 Canberra

 

My son Caleb’s party was fantastic thanks to you! All our guests were fascinated by Frodo’s show. Frodo was so high-spirited, even my husband and I felt the happiness he was bringing in to John Knight Memorial Park. We are still getting compliments about the party! We’ll definitely see you again next year. – Adrienne L., Deakin 1928 Canberra

 

Dear Ravi,
Our Yabadoo magician Ben was worth every cent. He managed to entertain ten six year olds nonstop for two hours. They laughed, danced and participated in all the activities. There were no tears or arguments! He was sensitive to the needs of each child, including them in activities and modifying them if the kids showed signs of being uncomfortable. He was respectful of us, checking in with our requirements. He even helped us when we served lunch. We'd be happy to recommend Ben to others. Our daughter, Anastasia described her party as awesome!!Regards
Anya

We have a fun magician game idea for your next party!

magician party Magician's Balloon Wand

 

Each kid gets one balloon and one wand. The children must keep their balloons in the air by hitting it with their wands. If a child's balloon touches the floor, then they're out of the game.

 

The last magician who keeps his/her balloon in the air wins!

 

You can also make it non-competitive by just letting them play until they get tired of it.

Are you also looking for a magician party favor idea that you can do quickly and easily?

  • - Single-hole puncher

Punch a hole on the black paper bag. Insert one end of the yarn into the hole. Now, punch a hole in one card from the deck. Insert the other end of the yarn, then tie both ends together to secure the card.

How to Plan a Magician Themed Party the Easy Way

A magician theme is a surefire way to bring magic and laughter at your children’s birthday party! Here are a few easy-to-do tips that will help you get started:

Magician Party Invitation

  • Cut out a shape of a top hat from black cardstock. Glue red ribbon on the base part of the hat. At the back of the cardstock, write your party details using metallic pen. It’s like sending magic through mail!
  • Do find cutting a top hat shape time-consuming? Another variety is to cut a rectangle that’s large enough for you to be able to glue 4 playing cards on it. Glue 2 cards per row. Your kid’s magician party details can be written on the opposite side. A silver metallic pen will still look the best for this.
  • Cut out 1 large star from red cardstock, and another star from black cardstock. Make sure they’re basically the same size. Put them on top of each other and glue one star “arm” together to make a star booklet. Write your party details inside. To make this even more personalized, print out a picture of your child and paste it onto the cover of the star booklet.

 

Magician Party Decorations

The most used color theme for a kid’s magician party is red, black, and white. Remember, this is not a rule. You can play around with colors as long as you incorporate the magic theme to the event.

  • Bundle 3 balloons together (red, black, and white). Make 2 sets and stick each one on both sides of your door post.
  • A simple yet effective idea for a magician table setting is to wrap the utensils with red table napkins. Wrap a black ribbon or yarn around it, insert one end through a punched hole on a playing card, then tie the ribbon to secure it.
  • Does your wall look bare? Here’s an easy and cheap magician backdrop idea: Put double-sided tape across your wall. This will act as your “curtain rod.” Cut varying lengths of yarn or nylon string. Make sure they are long enough to cover the wall you’re decorating. We want different lengths so it does not come out stiff. Press the edge of each string on to the double-sided tape. It will look best if the strings have the same distance from each other. Now, take a deck of cards and use scotch tape to tape them on the strings. Tape it until you have no more space to add another card, then do the same for the rest of the strings. You should have a curtain of playing cards! To seal it, put a strip of red paper over the double-sided tape on the wall.
  • You can also make buntings using string, tape, and playing cards. Hang them loosely on the ceiling and get this magic party started!

 

Magician Party Food

  • Dip chocolate pretzels into melted white chocolate and wait for it to settle. Abracadabra! Instant edible magic wands!
  • Want the easiest and fastest way to prepare the children’s food? A star-shaped cookie cutter is all you need. You can use it for sandwiches, cake, and fruits. Watermelons work really well for magic parties. Stick the star watermelon in a barbeque stick for an even bigger magic wand. You’ll be done in no time!
  • Buy your child’s favorite kind of cupcake. Tape a playing card on a piece of toothpick and stick it in the cupcake. If the playing card looks too big for the cupcake, you can cut the card diagonally or in half to make it proportional.

 

Magician Party Games:

  • Dip chocolate pretzels into melted white chocolate and wait for it to settle. Abracadabra! Instant edible magic wands!
  • A surefire way to make sure that the children do not get bored is to hire a kids’ party entertainer for your event. Make sure you hire an experienced entertainer. Read testimonials from the company you are thinking of hiring so you have an idea as to what they can offer to you. Yabadoo provides entertainers who can give your guests a jolly good time!
  • Prepare water and food coloring in primary colors. Have the kids take a whack at mixing in the colors to make secondary colors.

 

 

Easy Magician Tricks for Kids:

  • The birthday child asks for a volunteer. The volunteer leans his/her arms against the wall for 45-60 seconds. The birthday child says, “On the count of 3, you will step away from wall and I will lift your arms using mind power. 1, 2, 3!” The volunteer steps away and the birthday child acts as if he/she is controlling the volunteer’s arms. Watch as it rises up on their own!

 

Magician Party Favors:

  • A magic 8 ball would be a cool party favor to give.
  • You can also give the children their own deck of cards.
  • How about a small stuffed rabbit? You can also include a top hat to further reinforce your theme.
  • Put Trix cereals inside a ziplock bag and label it “A Bag of Magic Trix.”
