The thought of the circus coming to town has always been enough to light up a kid’s eyes. But if for some unexplained reason it does not come this year, don’t despair. Why not try to get the kids to put on their very own Circus?
You could invite family and friends around to watch the performance. With you being the ringmaster.
Depending on how many kids there are for the performance, you may need to get some kids to perform a couple of times as different acts. All the kids will have different talents, so it is important to match those talents with the acts they are performing.
If some older kids want to learn how to juggle for the show, let them. Just remember that it will be safer for them to juggle with something soft rather than batons or hard objects. You would not want anybody getting hit by a stray object.
The acrobatic act could be someone balancing their way along a piece of 2 x 4 that you have strategically placed across two boxes. They could pretend that they are balancing up high without a safety net.
Another good idea would be to use the family dog as a Lion, and one of the children as the Lion tamer. A Circus just would not be the same without a Lion act. If there are no family pets, why not get one of the kids to pretend that they are the Lion. This should be fun to watch.
There will be no shortage of volunteers to be the clowns either. Just get the kids to make up their own costumes and make up. This should be a laugh straight away. As the ringmaster it is your responsibility to do a professional job at introducing each act.
You will know if the performance is going well with the response from the audience as you introduce each of the acts. But don’t forget to give the audience nibbles to chew on such as peanuts and popcorn.
