The Top Broadway Theatre Shows for Kids Under 12

The Top Broadway Theatre Shows for Kids Under 12

Being a parent is quite a challenge and as your children grow up, figuring out what they have an interest in gets even harder.  Children can move into sports as they get older and that seems to be the most natural progression.  Being in sports gives them something to do, allows them to become social with other like-minded children and keeps them out of trouble.  Besides sports, other interests for children under the age of 12 could involve plays or theatre in general.  If you want to see if your children are interested in activities like theatre, here are the top Broadway shows you can take them to.

1. The Lion King

The Lion king is a highly recommended show for children under the age of 12 and if they have seen the classic movie, the show is even better.  Disney’s The Lion King is a Tony-winning production that is set up to dazzle and excite those who attend.  The cast has 46 members and they all have a part in the show that pulls on the sing-a-long part of your soul.

2. Wicked

‘Wicked’ gives your child a different perspective on a classic story.  Based on a 1995 novel, Wicked brings together everything that happened before the classic movies that all of us remember seeing as a child.  From the music to the flying monkeys, children above the age of 8 will certainly enjoy the show from beginning to the end.

3. Aladdin

With plenty of upbeat music that allows you to sing right along with the large cast, Aladdin is an adaptation of the original Disney movie and will also bring plenty of laughs for the family.  Songs that we remember from the original classic like “A Whole New World” and “Friend Like Me” will bring flashbacks of the beloved film and quickly remind us all how great it was.  This production is filled with color and plenty of special effects, including fireworks.

4. School of Rock: The Musical

Do you think that your child would get a kick out of seeing a musical version of the very popular School of Rock?  This show is just like the film and follows a failed musician on his quest to bring his love of rock and roll to the students he is teaching at a refined prep school.  The show is filled with all of the music from the film, as well as a couple of new scores for the family to enjoy.
There you have it, these are four of the top shows playing on Broadway right now that you can bring your children to.  All you have to do now is plan a day you can stop by the ticket offices to get your tickets to the show.

Children that appreciate theatre, acting and plays would really enjoy all of the four shows listed here.  There is plenty of entertainment for the audience, old and young, and the shows could even spark a new interest in your child looking to nail down a new hobby.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
