Fun Activities For Parent’s Day
- Musical Chairs
Contrary to popular belief, ‘musical chairs’ is really not a game reserved for kids. It’s so much more than this. It in fact is a game that can be played by people belonging to varying age groups; it really does break the boundaries set by age. From a ten year old kid to a forty year old man, anyone can play and enjoy a game of musical chairs. To put this game together, all you need to do is arrange a few chairs in a circle. Make it a point to ensure that the total number of chairs is not equal to the total number of parents playing it. Play a song and ask the parents to go around the chairs, stop the music suddenly, the parents should then be asked to rush and sit on the chairs that are free. The parent with no chair gets eliminated. This way, the game goes on until all but one parent is left with no chair to sit on. Musical chairs – An instant classic, really!
- Stage Presence
You may never have realized it, but your parents may just have quite a number of talents that you know nothing about, absolutely nothing about. Thus, the best thing you can do here is to give them a stage to showcase their talents and before you know it, you have one of the greatest activities for parents to indulge in. Who knows, you might even discover that your mom is one the best ballet dancers you have ever seen and your dad might even be one of the greatest guitarists ever! Surprise, surprise, and don’t be, your parents may just be a lot more talented than you think they are!
- Karaoke Night
Come on now, with a thing like karaoke doing the rounds, do you even want to feel the need for a better idea? The best thing about an activity like ‘karaoke night’ is that parents will still have a lot of fun, without feeling too much like a kid. Yes, yes, some parents just have to seem as mature as they possibly can and feel so all of the time too. However, with karaoke night, it’s always a compromise, because you never risk the chances of making your parents look excessively childish, while still helping them have a great time. Stitch this activity together by choosing a few popular songs, get rid of the singer, and play only the music, your karaoke night is bound to be a success. A word of caution: Parents who are great singers will need to be coaxed into singing; parents who are not really noted for their crooning may seem all that more ready to sing!
