Preparing for our First Live Show!!!

17 Apr

We have our first live appearance on Saturday!!!  I’m excited, the girls are excited… but I’m also a little bit nervous.  I know that kids love Bean, but because of our available options, I’m going to just be sitting with Bean… I’ll be fully visible and just talking with kids as Bean with him on my lap.  The odd part of this is that it doesn’t seem to make much of a difference!  Kids (of all ages) actually still see only Bean, talk to Bean, etc.

We are planning to take coloring pages to hand out, some sample dvds to give away and probably some mini cupcakes.  I’ll offer to let parents take pictures with Bean, and if our new camera is here, I’ll take photos and get email addresses from the parents so I can email them a copy.

I’m a little concerned with taking photos and filming and whatnot… with some people really not wanting their kids photos on the internet… ugh.  I’m not sure if I’ll just keep and use the photos of the kids where I have specific information/permission or just blur faces if its obvious.  I’ll deal with it when the time comes, as its kind of a moot point if my camera doesn’t come by then.

Thoughts?  Ideas?  Encouragement??

    Yay!! So excited for you! Maybe you should have parents sign in as they enter with a form that gives permission? I wish we could come!! Let us know when you’re on tour! 🙂

    You will do absolutely awesome! What about a business card that says what you are about, and that you will do some video taping. If they don’t give their child permission, then they should sit in a certain area that won’t be taped.

      Thanks! We do have business cards and i’m going to print up fliers as well. I think I’ll just get a few shots with some kids after I ask their parents… and other than that, well, I’m not going to even have a ‘real’ camera anyway, so I’m not going to worry about it this time around.

We LOVE getting your comments! Thank you:)
