Acting Up at Home During Holiday Breaks

 

 

Acting Skills are Life Skills

 

Make a Family Music Video

We all watch various music videos on YouTube and have seen those adorable homemade music videos go viral, so why not try your hand at it? Pick out a song that the whole family loves, coordinate your outfits, choreograph some dance moves and go to town! Don’t forget to share that video with your local Drama Kids on Facebook!

 

Put on a Play

Of course some theatrical offerings would pop up…….we are Drama Kids International after all! Your house could host a family play, with everyone in your family acting out parts of your favorite movies or even a special children’s book! Gather props from around your house, create some fun costumes with clothes from your closet, use lamps as stage lights, and get acting!

 

Camp out in the Backyard

There’s no need to pack up the car and drive to a campsite when your backyard is just as accessible. Perhaps you have a non-nature lover in the family or young children who might not be ready for the big camp out yet—your backyard is a great place to introduce them to the outdoors. The indoor plumbing accessibility is just an added bonus! If the weather is not so nice, you can also camp out indoors! Build a blanket fort, string some twinkly lights, grab some snacks, and have a camp in!

 

Go on a Scavenger Hunt

Plan a scavenger hunt through your neighborhood or perhaps a nearby park. Give your children a list of things to find, whether they are actual items or just landmarks. Then enjoy watching and helping them discover everything on the list!

 

Host a Dance Party

This is probably self-explanatory, but bust out the tunes and get down with your bad selves! There’s nothing wrong with holding a family dance party, especially if it gives you a chance to show off those awesome moves to your kids! There are tons of videos online of choreography your family can learn together. Find your favorite song from a musical, learn the choreo, then stage your own show!

 

Enjoy a Lazy Day

We’re often so busy that sometimes the most fun you can have is sleeping in then staying in your pajamas for the day. Everyone deserves a break now and then! Take the morning slow and enjoy spending some quality family time.

 

Have a Snack Party

Pick out your favorite snacks and enjoy them with your family. For a more interactive experience, perhaps try your hand at making your own! Gather all of your snacks and arrange them in a charcuterie style for a cute presentation.

 

Have a Musical Movie Marathon

Break out some of your favorite childhood musical movies and share them with your kids! There are tons of wonderful musicals now available to watch on demand. Pick something you have never seen before, grab that snack charcuterie, and get cozy!

We hope you are able to take some of these ideas into your home during the upcoming holidays! Remember, if your kids have a flair for the dramatics, our drama classes for kids are a great way for them to hone those skills and learn new ones!
