Fidget Spinner Prizes and Cookies Recipe with Andy's Mgaic

Fidget Spinner Prizes with Andy's Magic
As a children's entertainer its easy to for me to see what kids like, the latest crazies they are into, the most popular songs of the moment and the latest trends that are going around. At the moment the most popular toys are fidget Spinners and its because of their popularity that I've introduced them as prizes in my two hour party package. As soon as the kids realize a fidget spinner is up for grabs they go crazy trying to win them. I also make sure that as well as the birthday child helping in the magic show that they also receive one too, if they are  appropriate for the age. Every child wants not just one of these mega popular toys but with so many colors, designs and materials to choose from they love to collect as many different varieties as possible.

As a child party entertainer I can supply a full two hours of entertainment and the only thing you have to do is get the kids to the party and feed them. So with this in mind I thought I would share this great recipe for delicious Fidget Spinner Cookies that are easy to make and the kids will love them. And the great bit is they don't only look good and taste delicious but they actually spin as well. Watch the video below and see just how easy they are to make.


Let me know if you tried out this recipe and what success you had.

Thanks for reading and watching

Magical Entertainment in Redditch, Worcester, Walsall, Alcester and Kidderminster

Parties, Magic Shows, Disco & Bubbles
The weekend of the 17th and 18th July turned out to be the hottest of the year so far with temperatures reaching 32 degrees and its the start 0f a predicted week-long heatwave that will sweep across the U.K. — and it could get even hotter. Because of the gorgeous weather everyone seemed to want their party entertainment outside. There I was performing my magic shows in the gardens that acted as perfect sun traps, and I'm sure I was working in heat well above the officially record temperatures. But as the age old adage goes... "The show must go on" and go on it did. 

Firstly, I was children's entertainer and magician - Andy's Magic providing the ever popular Two Hour Party Package for Freddie in Webheath near Redditch, Maxwell and Louie in Walsall and Katie in Kidderminster. I was also booked to entertain for the children in Alcester for the joint celebrations of Charlotte's 8th Birthday and Holy Communion. It was hot, sticky, hard work but all went well. On Saturday evening I transformed into Andy Kirk, Magician and entertainer, entertaining with my close-up magic and mind-reading (which is ideal for weddings, christenings and private parties) at Heather's 21st birthday party in Ombersley, near Worcester, by the evening things were cooling down a bit and it was actually nice to be outside. It was a great weekend of magical fun and thanks to everyone for booking with Andy's Magic and I hope you all enjoyed the entertainment. 

Happy Birthday Heather, Freddie, Maxwell, Louie, Charlotte and Katie - you were all MAGIC!

A Children's Entertainer Is A Great Birthday Party Idea!

Andy's Magic - Children's Entertainer Bubble Fun
Magical Bubble Fun with Andy's Magic
There are such a wide choice of things you could choose to do for your child's birthday party: soft play area's, go carting. trampolining, laser quest, a football party, take them to the cinema... the list is endless. But what about booking a children's party entertainer and magician to run the whole birthday party for you, make it stress-free and leave everyone happy too?
 As a kids party entertainer and magician this is the exact thing I specialize in and there are a few others around who offer similar services to. Booking my Two Hour Party Package means that from start to finish I will entertain the kids, keep them happy and under control. From the moment they walk in the door the music will be playing, the lights will be flashing and bubbles will cascade around. As a children's entertainer with over 26 years experience I just know the children are going to want to join in straight away. Once the the kids have all arrived I'll start with games and competitions. The age range dictates exactly what party games and competitions I use and I've got a wide choice as well including: Pass the Parcel, dancing competitions, The Spot Game, Musical All-sorts (like bumps but a different thing to do each time the music stops) Name That Cartoon (theme music from children's favorites cartoons and programes are played and they have to guess. Each one). I also include action songs like the Hokey Cokey, The Music Man or Superman which are all firm favorites. There will also be a great chance for the kids to dancing in the dancing competition. In my children's entertainer Two Hour Party Package I supply or the prizes and bring the pass the Parcel too.

Kids love Pass the Parcel
Throughout the party the music played will be age appropriate and include loads of the most up-to-date and most popular hits of the day will be played including All About The Base, Gangham Style, Uptown Funk, and Songs from Disney's Frozen and Trolls. As party entertainer I try and keep in touch with the music that the children might be into. If you have any requests let me know when booking, ill be glad to play your requests.

The first half is 45 minutes. Then into the break where I will lead them to the table ready for refreshment. After an exhausting first half this is a great way to calm the kids down naturally and get them ready for The Magic Show that follows the break which I'll get ready while they eat While they are eating I'll bring out Charlie the Monkey (puppet) and walk around saying "Hello" to the Birthday child and all his friends. I finish of the break I'll get all the kids singing "Happy Birthday", let the birthday child blow out the candles on the birthday cake and get three cheers as well  leaving you free to take some great photos as it happens.

Hilarious Magic with Andy's Magic
We are now ready to start the magic show, which from start to finish will be crammed full of hilarious comedy magic, loads of fun, laughter and audience participation. Depending on age (normally up to six-years-old, Max the Magic Dog (puppet) will make his appearance, get everything wrong, cause chaos and finally perform some great magic, and Max the Magic Dog is always a massive hit with the children.

To finish the party you can choose to have balloons made and given out to all the children at the party — it's a great way to finish a birthday party and guaranteed to have the children leaving the party with 'smiles on their faces'.


You can see that it really is a full two hours of fun and all you have to do is to get the children to the party, give them their party food and party bags at the end, if so desired.

With Andy Magic, children's party entertainer, The Two Hour Party Package starts from just £185.00 as is a great value for money and is a sure-fire way of making your birthday party stress-free. It'll also give you the time to relax and look after any parents or guardians that stay to watch.

whatever you do for your next party enjoy it.

Does Your Entertainer Need A DBS Certificate?

Everyone wants to make sure the children at their party or event are safe and out of harms way but do you need to get a DBS from the children's party entertainer or magician your booking?

The short answer is most definitely not! Why? firstly, because you're booking a children's entertainer to entertain at your party or event and not a child-minder or nanny. You should ensure that at no time is the entertainer left on his own with the children. In fact, the children's entertainer or magician you've booked will probably insist on this. It makes sense: If there are other adults in the room, and why wouldn't there be, then this is a far better check than a piece of paper with the DBS certificate printed on it.

What is a DBS?

The DBS or Disclosure Barring Service, is a check that details convictions, cautions, reprimands, final warnings and additional information held by local police that is felt relevant. Only an employer such as a school, business, local authority etc can obtain one. It is impossible for the children's entertainer or magician or anyone who is self-employed to obtain one himself and is only needed if the person being employed is working with the same groups of children four times or more in anyone month and will or could be left in sole charge of those children. 

Your children's entertainer may have been issued with a DBS in-connection with work he's carried at a school, hospital or relevant business where the criteria of his work and time spent with children met the DBS guide lines but booked as a children's entertainer or magician to simply to entertain at your one off party or event doesn't require the magician or entertainer to be DBS Checked - so please don't reject the children's entertainer if he can't supply one - remember it's not mandatory, not necessary and may be against the law to get one or ask for one if not needed.

'The Best Children's Party Entertainer They'd Ever Been To...'

This is what Vicky Townsend of Lichfield, Birmingham, had to say about, Children's Party Entertainer and magician, Andy's Magic.

'We had Andy for my daughters 7th birthday party last weekend and highly recommend him. He was very efficient and kept 30 children entertained for the entire two hours, making it stress-free for me! Erin had a wonderful time as did all of her friends and lots were saying he was the best children's party entertainer they'd ever been to.'

As a kids party entertainer and magician, it's always nice to be appreciated and thank you Vicky for your kind words. I'm really pleased that Erin and all her friends enjoyed her birthday party entertainment. It was great fun all the way with the dancing in the disco lights and bubbles, loads of prizes won and lots of crazy comedy magic in the magic show.

Happy Birthday Erin

Venue Or Children's Entertainer First?


'Nice venue but the entertainers
 not the one I wanted'
You've probably done it before, booked the local village hall or community centre for your child's birthday party and then tried to book the children's entertainer or magician, that your little one has been raving about since they saw him at the last party they went to, only to find he's fully booked. Well, here is my advice.

If you've got an children's party entertainer or magician you're really set on booking then get that sorted first and do it as far in advance as possible—a few months before the party, at least. This might seem a long way ahead but once the children's entertainer is booked you can then search around for a suitable venue and the earlier you book the children's entertainer or magician the earlier you can book the venue and get exactly what you want on both counts. It's great having a nice venue but if the children's entertainer or magician is not that good the whole event could go flat and leave you with a nasty taste in your mouth. I think you'll agree it makes sense. With a wide choice of venues around from village halls, community centres, church halls, pubs, social clubs, hotels and restaurants etc, there's quite a choice and getting your party entertainer booked first and in advance will give you plenty of time to scour the internet and your area if you really need to.

    I hope this tip from Andy's Magic helped.

Thanks for visiting and reading.

7 Steps to Booking a Great Children's Entertainer



If you're going to book a Children’s Party Entertainer or Magician for your party or event then please follow these 7 steps that will help ensure you get a good, reliable and professional children’s entertainer who will make your party the success it deserves to be. It doesn't matter what part of the West Midlands you are based in —Birmingham, Dudley, Worcester, Solihull, Wolverhampton, Sandwell, Stourbridge, Kidderminster, or Bromsgrove—the magician or children’s entertainer in your area should, if he's any good, be able to offer all of the mentioned points.




Who Recommended Your Children's Entertainer: Always try and get a recommendation from family or friends. No one will recommend a magician or children's entertainer unless they were happy with the services they received and enjoyed the entertainment.


Your Children's Entertainers Facebook Page: The entertainer your thinking of booking will probably have a Facebook Page. To see what's on these pages you need to click the "Like" button and then you'll see what the magician or entertainer is up to, how busy he is and it's also another place that customers will leave comments and recommendations and it's a great way to stay in touch with your magician or entertainer.


Check Your Children's Entertainer is Covered: Make sure the magician or children’s entertainer you're booking has all of the following: Public Liability—I have £10,000,000 worth of cover, so you can rest assured that in the unlikely event of anything going wrong, you'll be covered. Make sure they have an DBS Check. Also ensure that all of their electrical equipment is P.A.T Tested.


Is Your Children's Entertainer A Members of Organisations: It's also a good idea to check out whether they are members of any official societies or unions. I'm a member, and current president of The British Magical Society as well as being a full member of Equity. Being a member of such organisations doesn't prove whether the magician or entertainer you've picked is any good but it does show their commitment to their trade. A fly-by-night magician or children's entertainer wouldn't bother paying good money to be part of these sorts of organisations.


Testimonials For Your Children's Entertainer: You're entertainer should have testimonials, customer comments or reviews of parties they've entertained at. Check their website for a Guestbook page, and here is were you'll find out exactly what previous customers really think of the entertainer you're thinking of  booking.


Compare Prices and What's on Offer: When comparing different children's party entertainers you may find that the fees vary quite a bit. This could be because the higher priced entertainer is offering far more in his party package than the lower priced ones. In my '2 Hour Package' for example... I offer: a great kids disco that all ages will enjoy and this includes: The disco, music, lights, a bubble machine, games, prizes, pass the parcel, action songs, dancing competitions and up-to-date music like: 'Let it go', 'All About the Base', 'Happy' and 'Gangham Style'. Some entertainers turn up with a small pa system, pop some music on and call it a disco - this is not a disco in anyway, shape or form. My package also comes with a Great Comedy Magic Show, Puppets and Balloon Animals, as well. Just compare what you're getting from each children's entertainer or magician and you should be able to see quiet clearly who is giving value for money.


Get a Contract From Your Children's Entertainer: Once you've decided and booked your children's party entertainer or magician make sure you are going to get a contract. This should show in detail what exactly your going to receive, how much it's going to cost, dates and times etc. If there are any discrepancies with the show, act or entertainment at least you'll have a written copy of the agenda to refer to. If the person isn't offering you a contract, be very wary. Even if you're making a last minute booking, it's still easy enough to email the contract / confirmation over - there are really know excuses for not sending a contract and it gives you peace of mind


I hope these Seven Steps will have helped you to get a children's entertainer or magician who will be professional and reliable and give great value for money for your next party or event.
