Are clown activities fun for kids?

Clown activities are fun for kids because they can help bring a smile to your kids’ faces! Clowns remind you of fun occasions, like birthday parties and the circus. By encouraging kids to let loose and play, they have fun as well as put into practice some other skills, like fine motor skills, critical thinking, creativity, and many more! Most of these skills can be practiced by being hands on and creating their clown costume!

Clown Name Printable: How to choose your clown name

Making your clown costume is fun and easy! Here are the steps to get your kids to decide on their funny clown names and start having some fun!

  • Play around with funny names and sounds – it doesn’t have to make sense; it just has to make you chuckle!
  • Think of a food you like – use that as your clown name. Whether it’s simple like banana or sounds funnier like gazpacho it’s bound to bring a smile to everyone’s face.
  • What’s your favourite animal? If you’re lucky enough to be bilingual or like languages, then translate the name of the animal into another language to make it sound even more fun.
  • If you want something a bit more simple, then take your own name and shuffle the letters around to come up with something more unique!
  • Pick your top 5 favorite clown names then whittle the list down until you find a great clown name that fits your personality.

How to Dress Up Like a Clown

If you want to take your new clown name to the next level, you’ll need a costume to match your cool clown name! 

  • Oversized clothes: Clowns often wear enormous, colorful costumes. The brighter, the better!
  • Oversized shoes: You should look like you’re about to fall down, tripping over your enormous shoes.
  • Face paint: To look like famous clowns, you’ll want to paint your face white and add a bright red smile (or frown), freckles, and any other features.
  • Red nose: You can’t forget the red nose if you want to look like a professional clown! Bonus points if it’s squeaky.
  • Prank props: Add a flower that squirts water or other funny little props that delight your audience.
  • Balloon animals: Although you don’t have to have this skill to match your cute clown name, many clowns can make elaborate balloon animals to share with kids at children’s parties. Try your hand at this fun skill and see how you do!
  • Hats or crazy hair: Use an old bowler’s hat or add wire to your ponytail to make it stand in a funny way. This will complete the look!
