A great way to burn off some energy, allow kids to “get their sillies out”, and to just have fun together is to engage in a little kids karaoke and/or all-out family dance parties! (And this is a really fun thing to put on the planning calendar if you are running your own DIY summer camp!)
Our kids received a karaoke machine ( like this one ) for Christmas, and at first everyone was a bit shy to use it. That is until Mom and Dad showed them how it was done!
Soon after they were battling it out over the microphone (literally sometimes, unfortunately).
Kids Karaoke- It's All About the Music!
Of course, the key to karaoke fun is great music! Here are a few sing-along CDs that get our two-thumbs-up!
- Super Hits Party Tyme Karaoke
- Disney Favorites Karaoke
- Disney's Frozen Karaoke
- Party Tyme Tween Mega Pack !

Family Dance Parties!
Even more than singing karaoke, we love to have a family dance party! We crank up the tunes and get our groove on! Friends over? Cousins visiting? No problem- there's room for everyone!
We've been doing this since the kids were little- and I am convinced that it was our regular family dance parties that have made my kids the life of the party at family weddings!
