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.

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

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.

Lets kick off with your Star Wars name, this is a great thing to keep the kids busy as they arrive, find out there name then let them design a name badge with their name on it.

Dublin to Cork

Dublin to Cork

It's been a fantastic month but also a very busy month, I touch on this a little in my last post The Complete Guide to Fathers Day 2018.  We have not long got back from a visit to Ireland where I was doing some shows but I also took my family with me and I think in total we had about 48hrs in Ireland to have fun. So I thought it would be great to mention a few things that we got to do and some things that you really shouldn't miss.
