Temporary Tattoos

Today Laura Martin (aka Beebop the Clown) shared this great tip with me. This time of year it seems that everyone has the cold or the flu, and this means that you may end up with fewer children then expected at parties. This can be a problem if you’re offering balloon twisting, a magic workshop, or facepainting where the smaller turnout may mean you’re finished early.

For an extra activity you might want to get some temporary tattoos. Since it’s is so lightwight you can take these to nearly every party and have them as a backup activity. Display them in the pockets of baseball card sleeves from the dollar store for quick selection and carry then in a 3 hole duotang binder.

With just a tiny binder there’s huge value added to the client. You can even offer temporary tattoo’s as an up-sell to your clients for an additional fee.

Personally I’ve never offered temporary tattoos at my shows before, but with such a small investment and the portability, it sounds like a no-brainer. With the huge range of temporary tattoos on the market there’s even an opportunity to enhance a themed party. I know for smaller parties this would be a huge hit.

Have you offered temporary tattoos at your show before? Let me know if you give this tip a try!
