Scripts For Children's Bubble Shows

Scripts For Children's Bubble Shows

Shows for children can be dedicated to an occasion or mass events.
Among the most frequent occasions are children's birthdays. As a rule, there are attended by children of approximately the same or mixed ages.

Mass events take place in children's institutions, in kindergartens and schools.
Let's look at the basic Bubble Shows Scripts for different events and for different age groups of children.
Birthdays, children aged 2-4
To create a script of a bubble show for children, you need to be aware of the children's age. If your audience are children aged 2-4, they won't stay focused for a15-minute act. They will look at the first 2 minutes of it, and then begin to distract and interfere with each other.

If you don't want this to happen maintain close contact with them. Do a lot of talking, be a good animator for a while.
I'm preparing to perform at a children's party
At such shows, I almost do not do tricks with bubbles, since children of this age do not understand them. They need flying bubbles, so they can be popped; they like chasing them. They need big bubbles to whoo and reach up for them.
A great holiday for small fidgets
They want to climb into a huge soap bubble, tinker in my tray with bubble juice. It makes them as happy as they can be. It is necessary to explain this immediately to their parents when discussing the show script, so that they understand it. We create a fest for children, not for adults.

Such bubble shows are most often ordered for households. Birthdays are celebrated in the circle of family and friends, perhaps even in a small apartment. Often, I'm the only artist who is invited to this party. Therefore, I do my best.
Birthday, children of various ages
If a child's birthday party is held somewhere in a cafe, there will be children of various ages. This kind of event is more complicated, you'll have to please three-year-olds, seven-year-olds, and even teenagers. Moreover, their parents can come too, and plenty of them too. For example, a Kazakh child's birthday might be attended by 80 adults. This is quite normal.

This bubble show script should include a complete act, because even seven-year-olds will watch. Not three-year-olds, though. If you see that you're losing the attention of youngest children, you must always be prepared to improvise. With children in general, we have to improvise a lot.
If you notice that children get bored, insert a part of master class into the act. For example, you reached the part with a 30-cm wand (Props, 30-cm Wand), and kids have already lost interest. It's a good idea to take a child on stage and let him/her blow bubbles with props. Blow a few bubbles, take the kid back to the audience.
Then make something with a wand, pick another child. You can squeeze the master class into the middle of the act. So that they focus their attention on you again.

Most often there are about 7 children. The only way to attract children's attention is the change of activities. They get tired of monotony.

Children are different, sometimes two-year-olds watch with their mouth open, it depends on the child. It is necessary to adapt individually to each child. There is no other way.
Bubble show master class
Interactive activities at a children's party are a must. First, summon the birthday person and do all the show elements with him/her. Then summon others, one at a time, and let each one perform a certain element.

E.g. summon the birthday boy/girl, let him/her blow into a 5-cm wand, make round bubbles from a 20-cm one (Props, 20-cm Wand). Blow a fiery bubble (Props, Fiery Froth Tube) on his/her palm and a long bubble using a 30-cm wand. Then pick more children one by one.

Every child is asked which props he/she wants to use for making bubbles. The child himself/herself says that he/she likes the most. Also, according to the script, all children must spend some time inside a soap bubble.
If the children are few, I tend to do a master class longer than the act. Because children really like it. I cut the number down to 10 minutes, and then we just blow bubbles with them.

If an artist has been around for a long time, especially at children's parties, he/she can diversify, to arrange a master class in the form of some kind of game or competition.

E.g. summon a couple of children, split the rest of the audience into teams, one supporting Pete, the other rooting for Mary. Now dip the wand, and command: those who will blow the most bubbles in 20 seconds wins; count to 20. Children count the bubbles aloud; the artist checks at the timer.

Then ask the children how many bubbles they made. The winners will be applauded to. It's a good idea to give prizes to everyone. If you add such contests to your script, you will extend your gig up to an hour. Children like it, if you want, you can do so.
Bubble show script for kindergarten or school mass event
At a mass event in children's institutions, there are other rules. In the kindergarten hall you might face 50-100 children aged 3 to 7. Most often kindergartens require a 40-minute program.

The script begins before the show does. First the children sit down. They still do not see the artist. But it also happens that you have to help to sit them. If there are many children in a group, then it is necessary to help teachers or even to guide the entire process. Sometimes, if some groups of children are delayed, we must somehow distract the children already sitting in the hall. The youngest can get tired of waiting and start to cry. First some of them, then all together.
Put on some quiet background music, go on stage. Say hello. Say to the children: "I came to you to blow bubbles that will surprise you" or something similar.
It is very, very important to promise all the children that they will find themselves inside the bubble, even if there are 150 of them.

You can even say: "Every child we have today will be inside a soap bubble, but for this to happen, you must obey me. Do not leave your seats until I call you. You should not run around and pop soap bubbles.

If you do, we won't blow bubbles at all." And then ask: "Do you agree?" The children will shout: "Yes!"

Mass games
You can include some introduction mass games into your script. For example, the classic one. Let everyone shout his/her name. First, all Petes, then all Marys, then everyone shouts their names. You say: "There are so many of you in here!!!", etc.

It's ok to include games into bubble shows, because kindergartens require a 30-40-minute script. The will be no master class, of course.

If you start a master class in front of so many kids, it might end badly, because you can't summon all of them on stage. Those who are not a part of the master class will be jealous. Don't do this under any circumstances. They will use one hand to wipe tears, and the other to throw tomatoes at you.
A smart assistant in the kindergarten
Many bubble show artists do not have enough charisma to send children away from the stage. Children might run out onto the stage, pick up equipment for the show. Moreover, there were cases when children tried to taste the bubble juice.

For such a case, I have one very interesting trick, but to use it you will need a smart assistant (Bubble Artist's Assistant).

Let's say you started working, and then one child or several of them climbed up to you on stage.
If this happens, a very smart assistant puts the music on pause. You make big surprised eyes and say: "The music has broken down, there won't be a party, because you went out on stage, guys, we had an agreement, didn't we? Let's sit down. Maybe everything will work again … ".

If you cannot solve the situation this way, in a minute all 100 children will climb over the chairs to get to your props. Often, teachers simply do not pay attention to this until the situation turns into a chaos habitual for them.

The children will believe that the music has broken down because they went on stage. The children won't do this again, believe me.
My smart assistant
Fast bubble dive
According to the script we need to immerse children in a bubble (Props, Human Inside Bubble Set). Younger groups will be the first to go. They will leave the hall immediately afterwards. We need to let the teachers know that all children will be inside the soap bubble. And that they can bring the children to the stage.
Children are placed into the tray in groups of 3-4. The teachers will arrange the groups' movement in and out of the bubble. When they've finished, wave them with a smile, shout loudly: "Good-by, guys!".

The last to go into the bubble will go children from the oldest groups. If the show will be attended by 100 children, put them inside a bubble in groups of 4. It means that the hoop will need to be raised about 25 times. If the assistant and teachers do their job well, you will do this very quickly.

Script for bubble show at school
The sequence of the show actions at school will be quite similar. What are the differences? The age of children, of course. Therefore, the artist should treat students like adults. If the artist himself is 20-22 years old, then there is a danger of catching up with the audience age. The schoolboy's show for schoolchildren will not be a success.

In order for this not to happen, position yourself as a professional, despite the age. For what it's worth, you perform for children.
I'll tell you a story that does not fit into the script for a bubble show
In one of the schools, my show was not attended by grades 8-11 (aged 14-15). They brought 1-7 grade students, because they thought the rest were too grown up for bubbles. The show was held in the gym, and the senior students crowded in the corridor at the entrance. They couldn't get inside for free, but they removed the door from its hinges, so that they could see better. They only look big, but they are still children.
According to the script, the act at school will last about 25 minutes, so we you'll stretch the time. Make more pauses, more repetitions. If you are capable of theatricalization, try using it.

In the end, arrange several mass games for feedback.
Serious assistant at school
In schools, of course, the trick with turning off the music will not work. You'll need a serious, tough assistant, who will enforce his/her authority. In the event that a bully jeopardizes the script and goes on stage, your helper must take him/her by the hand and accompany him/her to his/her place. There are no other options.

Naturally, the artist at this time literally interrupts the script for a second, but do not lose your smile and friendly mood. Moreover, in schools, children do not go to on stage without permission very often. And they behave themselves. If you yourself don't instruct children before your show of what they can't do, you allow them to do so.
Shows for children can be dedicated to an occasion or mass events.
For children aged 2-4, work as an animator, do fewer tricks, make more flying bubbles.
For children of different ages (from 3 to 15) show your act. Always be prepared for improvisation.
If the children get bored, change activities. Conduct a master class with children right in the middle of the act.
The master class is held with each child. Place all children inside your bubble.
In children's institutions, immediately voice the rules of you work with children.
You'll need an assistant: in the kindergarten – smart, in school – serious.
Invite groups of 3-4 kids for a bubble dive.
