Why clown activities are fun for kids?

Clown activities are fun for kids because they can help bring a smile to your kids’ faces. Clowns are reminiscent of joyful 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 down and creating their clown costume!

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 clown name 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!
