Great Ideas for your next PTA “Family Fun Night”

Inflatable Bounce HousesAs an active PTA member in charge of organizing events for the school, I am always looking for new forms of entertainment that will appeal to both children and adults. Every year we host an annual “Family Fun Night” that welcomes over 200 children and parents ready to participate in some fun activities. While I always manage to plan something creative and enjoyable; each year I find myself trying to come up with something new and more exciting than the past year!

We start planning for this event months in advance and we always try to come up with a new theme that will appeal to everyone. Working with a limited PTA budget, we are also always very cautious of our spending. We recently found a great entertainment company that was able to help us with many different forms of entertainment for our event. Their products were high quality and their prices were fair and reasonable.  We hired them for our family fun night and everyone had a great time! Following are some of the terrific entertainment items that we featured at our event:

Inflatable Bounce Houses

We were able to fit two bouncers in our school gym. The Jumbo Jump and the Spiderman Bouncer provided hours of entertainment. Both bouncers had an attendant at all times that ensured the safety of the children. The kids loved it!

Carnival Games

We decided on a carnival theme so we had many exciting carnival games.  The kids played baseball toss, milk can toss, hoop shot and many other games.

Magician and Magic Show

We had a great magician that came to our event and put on a magic show – he really got the kids involved.  We also had a professional magician that walked around and engaged the guests in interactive card tricks, coin tricks, and other mystical activities.

Arts and Crafts

Arts and CraftsThis is always a hit with the younger children.  Our arts and crafts table featured sand art, spin art, candy art, stickers and tattoos.  The kids really love these hands on activities.

Giant Jenga Game

This was definitely one of the highlights of the event!  This life size jenga game gets everyone involved and offers hours of fun!

Fun Food

Everyone always gets hungry after all the activities and the guests enjoyed cotton candy from the cotton candy machine, treats from the ice cream cart and lots of delicious fruit and cookies dipped in the chocolate fountain! Both the kids and adults enjoyed these fun foods!

We worked with Clowns 4 Kids to make this fantastic event possible! I would definitely recommend them for your next PTA event or any event that you may be planning.
