Is a karaoke party right for your kids?
If your child loves to sing and perform, why not give them the opportunity to strut their stuff with a karaoke party?
Karaoke is a great kids' activity, for outgoing and music-loving children. Extroverted children will enjoy singing their favourite songs with their friends and family, while less outgoing kids will have fun listening to their favourite songs and being part of an audience. Karaoke parties are a great entertainment option because they are:
- Great singing practice
- An excellent introduction to music for little ones
- A boost to your child's self-esteem
- Perfect for improving your kids' social skills
Karaoke parties are best for kids aged six and up, as children need to be able to read at a fairly proficient level to be able to follow the lyrics on the tv screen. Parental supervision is advisable when kids are working a karaoke machine, just in case something breaks.
How to arrange a kids' karaoke party!
Do you want to try a karaoke party for your kids but don't have your own karaoke machine? These are some of the best options:
- Hire a karaoke system (don't forget the microphone and speakers!). This usually costs around R2500, including songs, a tv screen, and help with setting up
- Buy a karaoke game. This is the best and cheapest option, but you will need to already own a games console.
- Buy a portable kids' karaoke player. These are availableat toy stores or birthday party suppliers, and usually for around R900 each. Keep in mind they usually have a limited range of songs. Great for younger kids!
Whether you hire a professional karaoke system, or simply crank up the stereo system and let the kids sing along, you will have plenty of fun and laughter if you host a karaoke party!
