Talent Show


In order to have a successful talent show, everybody in the family has to participate, even the family pet! If you have a small family, invite friends or relatives to participate. Talent comes in many forms: read a poem, play an instrument, do a dance, tell a joke, do a charade, act out an event from your week, sing a song, tell a personal story, stand on your head. Do anything you want to express yourself. Give everyone a few weeks notice to get their acts together. Someone might want to write a program when all the acts have been decided. Whoever organizes the show is in charge of refreshments to eat between acts.

Note: This is a fun event to organize on a special holiday. Friends and relatives could participate in skits or personal performances.
