Make sure to check out our last Blog Post for tips and tricks to making your virtual class a success! Here's the link!



BROADWAY & ME (RENT... for children)

  • COMPUTER, IPHONE, IPOD, IPAD, TABLET, ETC.

  • BUBBLES AND/OR BUBBLE MACHINE

  • CLEAN-UP BIN: Hampers, Tupperware, Baskets, or Ikea Bags work great!

  • DRUM: We're being using Lollipop Drums to rock out on the mat but anything your child can bang on to make some noise is perfect!

  • CARREER PUPPETS: We'll be using some career puppets to try some different careers on for size. Puppets are great if you have them. If you don't, career themed dress-up clothes are great - use your imagination on what this means... mom and dad's work clothes might as well get used for something these days 😂 You can also have tools handy that different careers use (cooking utensils, doctor's kit, old computer equipment, etc.)

  • PIGGY BANK SHAKER: You're going to have to make one but it's SUPER easy! Here's what you need: A water bottle or anything that you can put things in that is clear, can't be broken, and sealed tight. Then all you need to do is add some rice, quinoa, beans, and spare change! If you want to get fancy you can dye the rice pink using food coloring and vinegar!

  • SHAKERS + RIBBON (OPTIONAL: TABLE TO DANCE ON): We ALL need to dance it out right now. Brush up on your La Vie Boheme lyrics (verse one only) and grab some ribbons and shakers to help you and your little one boogie! If you want to get a little adventurous and make the coffee table into a stage, please tag us in the videos!
