Navasota's town clown, Matilda, brings the fun to your birthday party with the only comedy magic show in Grimes County. Watch kids of all ages eyes light up when Honey the bunny appears from a train caboose or when Matilda transforms them into a tiger with amazing facepainting!

My name is Melinda Schroeder and I am a 2001 graduate of the Cheerful Clown Alley School of Houston, Texas. I have been a clown for over 15 years. I focus on family entertainment and have performed for schools, day cares, summer reading program for libraries, weddings, corporate events, grand openings, neighborhood festivals and birthday parties for all ages.

I offer several packages and can customize your party or event.

My specialties are a comedy magic show with a live rabbit finale, face painting everything from hand art to full face art, and balloon creations of every kind from a poodle to a motorcycle.

Everything I do is family friendly and great for all ages. For the younger children the face painting can be done on the hand or arm and are fast and fun designs.

Also announcing a new addition to my services!

The maternity baby bump paintings. A great way to do something unique to remember your pregnancy. I customize the design working with the mother-to-be in her 7th or 8th month and then paint with FDA approved (washes off with soap and water) face paints. From there you can take pictures or I can take pictures for you and provide you with a disc of photos for you to turn into artwork for the nursery, photos for the baby's book or to email to friends and family.

How far will I travel?

While my library shows have taken me around Texas, my typical birthday, weddings, grand openings or corporate events are mainly in the Brazos, Washington, Grimes County areas. I do perform outside of these areas but would need to charge an extra travel fee determined by the location of the event.

If you are planning a large event

and would like to book additional clowns, face painters or balloon artists, I can help you with that also.

Please call me at 936-825-8985 to discuss further your event/party plans or for more information regarding maternity baby bump painting appointments.
