Ever met a pro kids magician who, for 20 years, also owned a childcare center? What could he teach you about doing kids magic at preschools? As it turns out, quite a lot! And it’s all in Tom Boleware’s e-book The Daycare Magician.
First published over 10 years ago, Amazekids’ Danny Orleans has updated Tom’s content, reorganized the chapters, clarified the trick instructions and added interviews with successful performers who specialize in performing for kids aged 2 – 5 years old. The result? A greatly improved manual from which you can learn everything you need to know about performing at preschools.
Over 130 pages, The Daycare Magician gives you an inside look at the facilities that care for and teach teeny, tiny tots. Once you’ve learned the challenges of running a childcare center, you can better market and communicate to them and enjoy the benefits: More shows and higher fees!
The book includes great advice on how to choose routines and create themed shows for this very young age. You’ll learn how to market and sell to the directors of these facilities, and how to boost your kid show income appreciably by becoming a daycare magician.
Tricks for Tots? Eight original routines are included by Tom and his colleagues—each designed to enchant or make preschoolers laugh out loud. There’s also a complete description of former police officer, Glenn Hester’s, Stranger Danger Safety Show. Glenn is from the Atlanta area and a veteran safety show school performer. His show is described in detail including dialogue so you have an excellent foundation to make it your own.
Here are some of the chapter titles in this e-book. Download the Table of Contents and a few free pages from the AmazeKids site to see how thoroughly Tom and Danny have covered this niche market so you can create, perform and sell a magic show to daycare and early learning centers.
This should be in the library of anyone who performs for very young children, even performers who do not work in preschools. FANTASTIC! Buster Balloon
