My kids love the show Imagination Movers. I was actually considering getting tickets for their latest tour but at around $20-40 a ticket and with my daughter only being 2 years old, I figured I’d pass. So I was really happy to see that Disney aired an Imagination Movers in Concert special on Sunday. Don’t worry if you missed it as they are airing it at various times this week on Disney.
Last night, we had our own little “In-Home Concert.” Here’s how to have your own:
1) You’ll need to record Imagination Movers in Concert on Disney.
2) Line up a few chairs in front of your TV.
3) Tape numbers to the backs or arms of the chairs and then create tickets with the same corresponding numbers.
4) Set up a refreshment/ticket stand. We have a Puppet Show Theater that I got for basically got for free last year so I used that. But you might just be able to use a small table.
5) Put up pricing for tickets and snacks/food. I timed ours around suppertime and had hot dogs, chips and milk/OJ to buy. Then later they could buy some popcorn. I kept the pricing really simple since they are so young and they each got a ziploc bag with some money for the night. Note: Since my kids are little the hot dogs were cut-up and put into bowls with lids. You’ll want to make sure they are done with their food before starting the show since they’ll be dancing and you don’t want them to choke.
6) Have them find their seats with the right number and make them wait before you start the show. (just like a real concert.)
7) Partway through, we paused the show, saying it was intermission, and then they enjoyed some popcorn. (again…don’t let them dance with food to prevent choking)
8 ) Just have a great time and you’ll get a lot of exercise from dancing with the show! I laughed so hard at how my kids were dancing. To them, it was like the real thing.
We had a really fun time last night. While we didn’t get to experience a real concert, the kids did enjoy the concept of it and we saved ourselves $80-160. I guess they had a great time because they’ve been playing pretend concert all morning! You can always record the show and save the concert night for a weekend or special day thing–like their birthday. Hoping you’ll be able to have a fun time with your kids this way, too!
