May is communion season, and the bad news is that you might already have left it too late to book some communion entertainment. But maybe not - it is worth a phone around to see who has some availability. At this age children are moving beyond the clowns and puppets, but still love a good magic show. They also enjoy bouncy castles. Some of the bouncy castles have a slide as well, which makes them perfect for those warm summer days we hope Cork is going to experience!
A good idea might be to hold a private family celebration on the Saturday of the communion, and a proper party the following day. By Sunday most of the parties will be over so you will have the pick of entertainers and bouncy castles.
Another good party idea is to hold your party later in the evening. The kids are old enough, and they are not going to school the following day. Have a barbecue for the parents and have someone come in to do the children's entertainment around eight or so. Again, you will find it far easier to find an entertainer that way.
