Ken, otherwise known as Cherry the clown came to see us. But what is a clown? How do you change into one?
So Children wouldn't be scared, Ken came as Ken and then made himself up as Cherry. As he added his makeup he talked about what he was doing. He used a greasestick, because it doesn't crack like face paint, and he painted it one with his fingers. "Who like fingerpainting?" he asked as he looked for points the children could relate too.
He drew out the children's prior experiences with clowns and make up, who'd seen a clown? Where'd they seen it? What did they look like? Did anyone's mum use an eyebrow pencil? What about baby powder?
Then Cherry got out his clown bag and started to clown around.
He used his fairy sticks to juggle and then got jack to help lift up his leg, so he could do a trick.
Jack reckoned he could do that "because I've had a couple of school visits." Whoop Jack lifted him over.
He made his helpers balloon presents.
He needed some where to put the first half of Jack's while he made the second half, so he put it on his nose. What a clown.
