  • How do I book an event and when should I do so?
    Busy Bees Parties is one of the region's top entertainment companies and it is highly recommended to book as soon as you have a venue, date, and time secured. To book an event, all clients must complete the online booking request form on the Contact page. All communications should be done through emails so that there are no discrepancies and so that all parties have copies of the details. 50% booking fee is required to hold your event in our calendar - until the payment is received, your time slot will remain available to other potential clients. The remaining 50% balance will be due no later than 3 days prior to the event. If full payment is not received prior to the event, our entertainers will not arrive.
  • Are your rates negotiable?
    Due to the time and cost that goes in to purchasing supplies, maintaining quality control, and paying our entertainers a living wage, we are not able to lower our rates. However, we are happy to offer a 10% non-profit discount to schools and registered charities (charity number may be requested) upon request.
  • When do Travel Fees apply?
    Busy Bees Parties offers our base rates to events in the Waterloo Region We have now expanded to the GTA and Halton Regions! Our rates are slightly different in those areas, so please inquire for a quote.
  • What are your payment methods?
    Busy Bees Parties conveniently accepts Credit Card Payments and Bank Transfers. Organizational Cheques may be used for Corporate events. We do not accept cash payments at this time, with the exception of cash gratuities for the performers.
  • Are the Face Paints safe for skin?
    Busy Bee's Parties only employs artists who paint with skin-safe, hypoallergenic, cosmetic-grade, FDA compliant materials. We take the safety of our little clients very seriously and carry $2M liability insurance for your piece of mind. If you have any reservations about particularly sensitive skin, you may request a test patch on the wrist before a full face application.
  • How do I wash off the Face Paint?
    We do not recommend cleaning the face with baby wipes as the chemicals can cause a reaction with the paint. Our official cleaning suggestion is to apply a mild soap to the paint with a touch of water, work up a lather, and wipe away with a wet cloth. If you notice any staining (which is perfectly normal with pigmented colours), you may apply baby/coconut/olive oil to the skin and wipe away after 10-20 minutes.
  • How many children can be painted in an hour?
    Busy Bees Parties books 1 artist for up to 15 children per hour. If you are expecting a higher number of participants per hour, please mention this while booking so that we can discuss a fast designs option, add additional entertainers, or adjust the length of your booking.
  • Do you have age restrictions for Face Paint?
    While our professional products recommend a minimum age of 3 years old, we leave it up to the discretion of the parents if they wish for their child to be painted. Please note that our artists will NOT paint an unwilling child, as face painting should be an enjoyable experience for all :) There is no maximum age to be painted.
