Birthday Party Tips in Minnesota

Birthday Parties are a fun and festive time.  Here are five tips to make your child’s party a super fun event that your child will never forget.

#1 – Pick a Fun Theme.  It could be your child’s favorite sport, cartoon or even story book.  Imagine a Dr. Seuss party with colorful plates and napkins. Or a pony party where you have stuffed pony’s on the tables to decorate.

#2Decorate –  Pick a color theme or go with the general theme. You can go to town and get a lot of fancy things from party stores, or you can decorate with little cost.  Many party stores have balloons on strings for a dollar each so load up and fill the house with movement and color – and each child can take one home.  If it is a circus or zoo party – decorate with pictures of animals taped around the house. if it is a sports party – pictures of sports heroes and actual footballs can add to the decor.

#3 – Dress up! Invite your guests to come in costumes.  This is very fun as kids love to dress up. So make it a princess party or a sports party and invite guests to wear a costume if they like.  I presented a magic show for a fantastic princess party once and the girls all wore ballroom type or Disney princess gowns and it was so cute!  It also made for great photos for the Parent’s Face Book and refrigerator door.  An unforgettable party.

#4 – Invitations. E-mail or hand delivered – either is fine… but you can be very creative in a very short time with fun fonts and clip art found on your computer or on line.  Make it fit the theme. Personalize for your child. Don’t forget the Who, What, Where, When and what theme.  You can put together a very fun invite with a few moments time and use the theme colors and topic in the invites to generate excitement for the big day.  Even put a photo of your child on the invitation and the words, Please come to my race car party on ….

#5 – Invite some extra special entertainment. Might I suggest a magician? Magic shows are a delight and spread laughter and smiles.  In my show I make the birthday child the star of the show. Many of the tricks just won’t work unless the wand is waved by the birthday child… and then presto – a big surprise ending and applause for the star of the party!  Its fun!

  • In my magical birthday party show the theme of your party can be MAGIC – which is cool for decorations and etc.  You can have the kids make their own magic wands as they arrive at the party. Roll some black or bright colored paper and use tape to make the ends.
  • Magic shows also add fun to any themed birthday party. You can have a pony party and I can make a stuffed pony come out of the hat. (after your child waves the magic wand) – This pony makes a memorable gift for the birthday child. If you have a Pirate Party I can make Pirate Treasure magically appear with the help of your child and then your young magician passes out the pirate jewels – such as bead necklaces etc. This naturally works for the princess party or other themes.
  • Magic shows get them laughing at a birthday party and this sets the mood for the entire event. I can set up in living rooms, rec rooms, den or dinning room. Magical entertainment is adaptable and plays well anywhere.

A few recent comments about the Minnesota Magician

“Great entertainer for your party. Cool magic with lots of fun. 
We hired Norm to perform a magic show for our daughter’s 5th birthday. He was such a wonderful entertainer. The show was amazing and fun! The kids, as well as the adults laughed and had great time. Norm also performed balloon twisting for the kids that he offered as an add-on package. The kids all had a blast with lots of fun. The cost was very reasonable. Highly recommended!” Yellow Pages on line review.

Magic shows for children in Minnesota are fun!

This is a shot of my little act that is a tribute to Red Skelton and Stan Laurel.  It is a silent comedy act that the families at the Spring Valley Library enjoyed this summer as a part of the Summer Reading Program. The theme was music and reading so I brought the musical magic show with all sorts of comedy and fun.

Library Magician in Minnesota


It is fun to bring Magic shows to the children at the Summer Reading Programs.  We already have 8 libraries booked for this coming summer tour.  the theme is Super Heroes … And I thought I would bring a program that talks about how kids can learn about being a hero at the library but also develop their skills and interests so they can be a hero too.  Maybe they will be a scientist or Nurse or fire fighter. You can learn about that at your library.

Here are some nice comments from librarians about last year’s library programs.

“Norm the Reading Magician put on back-to-back shows at the Plymouth Library with an audience of more than 200! He had kids roaring with laughter and excitement, and a bunch o’ parents and grandparents told me how much they enjoyed the show, too. I loved how he had so many kids from the audience come up to be part of the show — an experience they aren’t likely to forget! Norm was very professional to boot. I highly recommend him, especially for public library performances, though you’d better have an enclosed performance space, because the lively performance and wonderful audience response got pretty loud! — Linnea Fonnest, Youth Services Librarian, Plymouth Library, Plymouth, Minnesota

“Magic Norm was a huge hit here in Hastings this morning! He performed at Pleasant Hill Library for about 80 kids and theirs parents and he had everyone laughing and participating. And he promoted reading with every trick so that by the end of his performance the kids were not surprised to see a library card magically appear!” Gladys Kim Head Librarian – Pleasant Hills Library Hastings, MN

Magic with the motivational message about reading brings fun to Schools and Libraries in MN and WI.
