Day 282: Family Talent Show

Having a family talent show is an excellent way to motivate children to work on their talents. It can also be a lot of fun together as a family, in a low risk environment to learn how to get over stage fright. Have each person in the family prepare something using one of their talents, whether it is singing something, playing an instrument, or creating a work of art of some sort, perhaps even writing a poem.

You make the rules that everyone has to be paying attention and listening closely when another person is on stage and that everybody claps at the end, and doesn’t say anything to make whoever’s on stage feel embarrassed. No one is allowed to talk but it a person onstage, unless it is some sort of comedy routine or magic act with audience participation.

If you start here by getting your kids used to performing, who knows how else they might reach out and use their wonderful talents?
