Welcome to day 1 of the Family Lockdown Fun challenge!
One easy and fun family activity
Today’s idea: “Talent show” at home
How to have a “talent show” at home
Plan a special family night and invite each family member to participate in a talent show and share two of their talents.
The participants can choose to sing, play an instrument, recite a poem, do a magic trick, dance, perform a stand-up comedy act, and show any other talent they have.
Create a program and take turns in performing in the talent show. Young kids can join a parent’s (or older sibling’s) performance if they don’t want to participate on their own.
Prepare mini-prices for all participants and have fun together watching all performances!
