Make a Variety Show
All you need to do it gather mom, dad, your babysitter, siblings, friends, and anyone else who might be around! Everyone might want to participate, or some might just want to be the audience. Create your show by gathering all your ideas and special skills and putting them together.
- Make a song
- Play some instruments and make up words (See our making-musical instruments post!)
- Make puppets (socks are great for this!) and do a puppet sketch
- Show off your artwork
- Show off your special skills (hula-hooping, standing on one foot, ball-bouncing, crossing your eyes, making funny faces, etc.)
Whatever showcases YOU! If you're feeling especially creative, you can make a set, costumes, and even do special lighting (for example, make a spotlight with a desk lamp). Put on fun clothing, make signs pointing your audience where to go, or put on songs you love to play between acts. It can be really fun to have an announcer or MC between acts.
