The following post is brought to you by Netflix.
Do your kids love to sing along while they watch musicals? Looking for some options besides Frozen?
While Brett and I were beefing up our Netflix queue during a recent date night, I spied some new categories: Musicals and Sing a Longs.
I saw some old favorites, as well as some new ideas for family movie nights.
Check out these ideas for your little ones – these are kid tested by the eight and under set in my house!
Around here, these are some of our favorites:
Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Shrek the Musical
School House Rock Earth
If you’ve got tweens and teens in your house, take a look at these selections:
High School Musical
Phantom of the Opera
When we do family movie night, we love to have fun crafts and recipes to make the time extra special.
When I was perusing Pinterest, I found these super easy Egg Shakers to make with my kids. (perfect way to use all those extra Easter eggs around your house!)
For a simple but fun snack, I’m planning on using this idea and making edible Drum Mallets. All you need are pretzel sticks and mini-marshmallows. I have those in the pantry right now!
What are your favorite family friendly musicals? Be sure and leave me your thoughts in the comments! I’d love to know what you enjoy, so I can check them out!

For the tweens and teens, don’t forget old musicals. With a little coaxing, this age range can forget the ‘old fashioned’ and learn to love musicals like Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Singin’ in the Rain, On the Town etc. (Anything Gene Kelly was a favorite with my boys …)

My kids LOVE musicals!! Anything with Gene Kelly or Fred Astaire is fun to watch. Thanks for sharing via Family Fun Friday.

My 5-year-old is recently infatuated with Elvis, and loves her some Blue Hawaii! Thanks for linking up on Family Fun Friday — I’ll be featuring you tomorrow on my Summer Family Fun roundup!
