Someone who performs in a circus, who wears funny clothes and makeup, and who tries to make people laugh.
A drawing by the kid at age 5;1 shows a smiling clown with red round nose and a blue-striped pink cone hat with a furry ball on top. She has a purple hair and peach dress with blue tutu-like part and three blue buttons. She wore a pair of large round shoes with three blue buttons and blue furry cuffs around the shoes or boots. No hands. I think the kid forgot.
