Aladdin Kids Party Fun

Aladdin Kids Party Fun

I’m loving this project Disney is working on to take all of their animated classics and turn them into live action films. I think it started with Cinderella which was ok, Beauty and the Beast was brilliant, Dumbo was umm ok and when I first saw the initial teaser for the new live action Aladdin

Music - Maracas

Music - Maracas

We’ve reached the final week of our music fun. This week we are going to have some fun putting together a Music Festival Kids Party and I’ll show you how to make your own Maracas.  Often overlooked as a child's toy these maracas are in so many songs and add a very odd rhythm to music, a little like reggae music where you get that extra little beat.  Here is a good example of some music with Maracas

Music - Hand Drum

Music - Hand Drum

Another week and another chance for us to get our kids into music.  This time I have included a drum.  I find that out of all the instruments kids love, drums are at the top.  This drum is great because I think it will take kids a few attempts to really get the rhythm of it.  When things present a little challenge to kids they like it more once they have overcome it.  It comes from being proud and feeling accomplished.

Knights and Knaves - Food 'n' Fun

Now you have a dragon mask, have the kids grab their Jousting pipes and play tag, the first person to tag the dragon with their pipe then becomes the dragon and the game continues until everyone has had a turn.

We are not done yet! How about some proper British food to go with all this quintessential Brittishness?

Sweetcorn Fritters

Sweetcorn Fritters

This recipe is a top favourite in our house. Make sure you try the salsa with it because I love it. I have been a bit vague with the potatoes in this recipe because it depends how big the spuds are. I have made it with two but I’ve also made it with five. Trial and error is the way to go with this one.

Music - Rain Sticks

Music - Rain Sticks

This month's theme is Music, I love music, in fact I love pretty much every genre of music (much to my wife's despise). Riding in the car with me can sometimes be very odd with the music skipping between a genius like Yo-Yo Ma to Rap and underground Grime and then back to a new pop song etc.
