It is right to choose Santa Claus and Snegurochka, who will come to congratulate the kids at home or at the Christmas tree organized in the restaurant, a delicate and responsible business. There are several reasons why parents should be careful about this choice. the visit of these two New Year's characters can cause far from positive impressions in children.
th. Santa Claus and Snow Maiden should be able to speak with children in the language that is understandable for a particular age group. It is no secret that preschool children are very different from primary and secondary school children.
In this regard, when contacting a particular holiday agency offering to organize a visit of fairy-tale characters to a children's New Year's party, you should ask whether the artists who have undertaken to play the roles of Santa Claus and the Snow Maiden have a pedagogical education or diplomas from the Institute of Culture? Alas, such work is often undertaken by people who have little understanding of how to work with children.
In addition, you have the right to receive photographs of the artists proposed to you in those costumes in which they will work with your children. I recommend that you take a look at the costumes, so as not to get filthy Santa Claus and Snow Maiden afterwards. You can also see the age of these artists in the photo. If Santa Claus is too young, it's not great if Snow Maiden is too old too.
I advise you to pay a visit to the agency and there to meet with the artists you pay for, and therefore has the right to communicate with them. This should be done in order to tell them the characteristics of the characters of your children, to acquaint the artists with the taste preferences of children and to tell about what and how to give to your lovely kids.
2. It is necessary to request from the agency a short scenario plan for the program of actions of Santa Claus and Snow Maiden on your holiday. This will help avoid mistakes in the work of artists, who, for example, are planning too adult contests for your kids or too many interactive games, not taking into account the limited area of an apartment or house. In addition, it is the scenario plan that will allow you to avoid "amateur performance" in the actions of the invited artists, who often act on a whim, based on their own idea of a children's holiday, and not what you and your children need.
Also, the scenario plan, if it is an integral part of the agreement with the agency, will allow you to defend your rights in case of unforeseen circumstances, for example, replacement of artists by an agency for reasons beyond your control.
3. It is necessary to conclude an agreement with the agency for the provision of services, the annex to which must necessarily be the scenario plan approved by you. In addition, you should not pay 100% for the work of artists performing the roles of Santa Claus and Snow Maiden, but limit yourself to only 50% prepayment. In this case, you will protect yourself from low-quality performance of services, because you will have leverage over the agency.
4. When ordering a visit from Santa Claus and Snow Maiden to congratulate the children, ask the agency if they can offer you a turnkey organization of the entire children's matinee? The fact is that a holiday turns out much brighter and more interesting if all its elements, for example, a letter from Santa Claus in the mailbox with a promise to come to your baby, if he helps his mother prepare holiday cookies or makes toys for the Christmas tree himself, and all a chain of joyful events before the appearance of Santa Claus and the Snow Maiden, including festive decor, music and lighting, costumes for children and parents, as well as performances by other artists and animators, were developed by clever creators working in agencies.
It will cost a little more than a visit to a fabulous duet, but the children will be grateful to you and you yourself will get an unprecedented pleasure.
