Welcome to Tulip and Friends

About Tulip

"I believe that each child is special and unique.  My program will build
self-esteem and allow each child to experience art in the present."

Tulip is a children’s entertainer who has been making audiences laugh, smile, and have fun for over 25 years. Tulip uses a wide variety of programs to entertain audiences, ranging from magic shows, balloon art, clowning, and more.

Tulip's audiences can range in age from preschool to senior citizens. Children and families are a personal favorite.

 She is especially proud of her reading and storytelling programs. 

"I enjoy the Reading and Storytelling Programs the most.  Watching the children's eyes light up as they learn the magic of reading and storytelling is its own reward."

Barb's teaching experience has been developed through course work and has been delivered in Indiana, Michigan, Nebraska, and Iowa.
