Halloween Party

 Top 5 Ideas for Having a Grrrrreat Halloween Party

1.  We all know that there will be plenty of sugar consumed over the next few weeks, so how do we get kids to eat healthy?  One way that I have found is to make the food look spooky and fun.  This Family Fun website has ideas and pictures of 15 Hauntingly Healthy Halloween Snacks which will add a bit of flair as well as get you plenty of compliments at your party.

2.  Carving pumpkins has become more than just a spooky face. Now people are carving scary cats, skulls, ghosts, bats and more.  A few years ago I discovered that there are plenty of websites with free printable templates that you can use to cut that special design into your favorite pumpkin.

3.  How can you spook up your home on a budget? Simply making the decorations yourself is not only a great way to save money but also a lot of fun.  When the scissors and glue come out of the craft box, all the kids in our family like to get involved.  Here are 34 ideas of Halloween crafts you can make with your little demons when stuck in the house this fall.

4.  Games can be a lot of fun, but what kind of games are good for Halloween?  I haven’t seen anyone bobbing for apples in decades!  In fact, after you put all that make up on or spend time getting that special outfit on, sometimes you wouldn’t even be able to bob!  Well, you don’t have to play them all, but check out these 15 Fun Games.

5.  Make your holiday party stand out this year by having a Professional Magical Entertainer spice it up! This year’s party will be memorable for many years to come with the addition of a Holiday Magic Show.  Book soon before all the available times have been Spooked away!

Hobe Sound Golf Course – Celebrities Fore Kids

Magic at the Hobe Sound Golf Club

It was a beautiful day to be out on the links, but we were having a blast in the club house.  Celebrities Fore Kids is a great organization that I have had the privilege of meeting today.  The purpose of Celebrities Fore Kids, Inc. is to improve the quality of life for children with cancer, and their families, who live on the Treasure Coast of Florida. Presently pediatric oncology services are not available in the Treasure Coast. To further this purpose, the organization works closely with agencies, physicians, schools, hospitals and pediatric care centers.  Their goal is to offer financial, emotional, and social support to these children and their families.

Celebrities Fore Kids


I got to meet some great families today and would like to think that I had a part in the big smiles that I saw on all their faces.  Lots of audience participation was on the venue today and I think it we can say that everyone had a chance to participate in one way or another.   I had so much fun as a Family Magician today and look forward to more of these opportunities.

Now begins the prepartion for next years event, since I have already been told to set the date.  Stu has even started to get prepare by pretending to be a very still rabbit. He really impresses me that when it is showtime he behaves so well.  Here at the house, I am constantly having to tell him to get out of the dog’s food dish.  My dog eats cheeseburger flavored dog food. Maybe Stu is trying to tell me he wants to go out to McDonalds!  Either way, he is one crazy rabbit here at home.

Listen to what someone had to say after the show!

Magic Tricks or Magical Entertainment?

How much does a Magic Show cost?

Most people don’t realize that, when talking to a true professional entertainer, this question can be as vague as someone calling a local garage and asking how much it would be to fix their car that won’t run. There are different types of preparation, costs that are involved, and planning that must be done before every different type of show.  Therefore, here is some information to think about before you start your search for that perfect entertainer.

Most people I talk to really have no idea what to expect, but with some key information, together we can create a perfect event for their special occasion.  First of all, how many people will be attending your event?  Believe it or not, it makes a huge difference and this number will help develop what type of show would be best.  For instance, let’s say you are expecting 500 people, there is a cocktail hour before dinner and then time for a show afterwords.  It may be best to have close up magic during the cocktail hour so the crowd will be encouraged to stick around after eating for the entertainment.  Most laymen refer to this as David Blaine magic because of the familiarity of it on TV.

Next, would be the time.  Most kids magic shows are best to kept at 30 to 45 minutes, depending on age, because of attention span and restlessness.   Don’t be afraid to add some balloon twisting after a show, because this is something they can enjoy without sitting still! 🙂  After a family event, when time allows, I’m often asked to add this on as a last minute thought because parents have not thought what they were going to do with all these children in their home!

Finally, and probably least important is the price.  Prices will always vary depending on the entertainer, so ask for references.  In most cases, “you get what you pay for” couldn’t be more true.  I post my references from a source that checks who is sending in that particular testimonial.  Recently, I began video taping them to add even more validity.

Now, to answer the question…Magic Tricks or Magical Entertainment?

While reading my Testimonials, you will notice that everyone of them mention something about how well they were entertained and never mention that all I did was trick them.  This is the biggest compliment I could ever receive.  After all, I am a Magical Entertainer and with my comedic style, it is impossible to leave without a smile on your face.  Everyone wants to be entertained and that is my ultimate goal.

Then name says it…Vynn Credible!

McDonald’s Magic Show

McDonald’s is a great place to have your kids birthday party.  After all, the kids are out of your house, someone else

 sets up, someone else cleans up, and there is a cool hamster maze for the kids to crawl through, all in the comfort of A/C.  Speaking of A/C, I know one magician and balloon twister that can really appreciate doing a show inside instead of outside!


Once again, I had a lot of fun performing for a 5 year old’s birthday party.  Twisting balloons in all kinds of shapes and sizes and as always, someone requests the easiest balloon ever…the worm.  Seriously kid…a worm? Do you want it twirled up like a snake ready to strike? How about in the shape of something, like a heart?

“Nope.”  He says, “Just blow up the balloon and put a knot in it. That’s what I want.”

Well, I gave him what he wanted and he took off running excited as ever when I handed it to him.  This is a great lesson that I should have remembered from my mentor.  It’s not what you want that is important, it’s what makes the audience happy and entertains them that you should do.

However, after a half dozen swords I tried to get the boys to be a little more creative and showed them some more balloon shape options and then they were excited to chase each other around with bumble bees, sharks and a parrot on their head!

Timing is everything, make sure that the “bringer of the cake and ice cream” understands to wait until after the show or (mental note for next time) start the show after the cake and ice cream have been served.  This a golden nugget for any new magician starting out, so take note! 🙂

Birthday party Magicians are a lot of fun and I encourage parents to try out a good one (like me!).

Restaurants do not allow live animals.  This is the only down side that I have come across so far.  Therefore, if you would like my magic show with the live rabbit, then it must be done somewhere else, like your home.

Thanks again to the family that booked me for a 3rd time!! You guys are VIP’s to me and can’t wait for the pictures.  They will be added to this web page and the Vynn Credible Fan Page on Facebook.

RBC Bank Family Fun Day

Twisting Balloons & Magic in Melbourne

Today I had a lot of fun meeting new people and twisting balloons for the local residents of Melbourne, Florida who were looking to have some fun at the Family Fun Day sponsored by RBC Bank.  The DJ did a great job promoting the different booths that were set up today including my own.  We even had an opportunity where I was able to draw a crowd for some close up street magic that, according to the DJ, made him feel like a kid again because he couldn’t believe what he was seeing!

That’s all part of the Vynn Credible experience!
