Star Search

Directions

  1. Send invitations to your friends two weeks in advance so everyone will have a chance to prepare an act either alone or with a few other people.
  2. Acts could be anything they like to do. They could be funny or serious and do not have to be professional since the idea is to have fun.
  3. The day of the party, clear an area in your yard or house for the stage.
  4. Get a few parents to act as judges giving out awards like best performance, most original, best actor or actress, funniest, silliest, one that you never want to see again, best imitation, best costume, etc.
Note: If you have video camera, tape the acts and play them back on the TV.
