SUPER BIRD BETSY creates memorable events for young children through storytelling, finger-plays, creative dramatics, movement and music. You may choose from popular storybook themes such as “Caps for Sale”, “Where The Wild Things Are” and “The Brave Little Indian”, just to name a few. Through costumes, masks and face-paint, Betsy makes the story come alive. Her dramatic tales of make-believe enthralls and delights young audiences. A party atmosphere reigns as Betsy transforms into a clown in front of the children, dispelling fears and bringing smiles to faces and joy to the hearts of younger party goers. While the children enjoy their birthday treat, Betsy will paint each child’s face into a clown. Betsy can change her character to adjust to the theme of the birthday party. Afterwards, each child will decorate their own cupcake and have lemonade or water to drink. Goody bags will be passed out as well.
