How many of you can sing “Let it Go” word for word? I have two boys and I can tell you all about that movie and song. I can also tell you many other countless songs from various movies and musicals. Some of my favorite are from the past. Graham is now at an age where I can share with him some of my old favorites and have him appreciate them.
Thanks to Netflix, I have access to many of them any moment I’d like. Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was one I remember from growing up that Graham really likes. How long has it been since you’ve seen this one? It is pure magic! Footloose was one of the first movies Matthew and I watched once we got our Netflix subscription. While we won’t be sharing it with the boys, it is a fun one that leaves you with a good feeling. Of course, who could forget Grease? I remember playing Sandy in a talent show our school hosted way back in the day. I can for sure sing every word of those songs! Watching my niece participate in her middle school’s version of High School Musical just last week was such a treat and flood of memories.
You can find all of these classics and many more on Netflix right now. How about introducing your kids to a new/old favorite and even creating a few fun DIY crafts to set up your own stage?
Here are a few of my top 5 favorites from around the web:
1. DIY Microphone from Moonfrye
2. DIY Stage Speakers from Mama Stacey Celebrates
3. DIY Pallet Stage from Sugar Baby Boutique
4. DIY Mirror Curtain from Ruffled
5. DIY Folding Pallet Backdrop from Made by Marzipan
So, what will you create and share to create a musical in your home?
