Those of you who know me, no doubt know that I’m a huge advocate for music in the homeschool. 

Also you know that I always say that subjects learned and experienced as a part of a family often tend to be the ones that kids cherish the most and want to pursue the most. 

While I do understand that subjects like chemistry maybe difficult to teach in a family evening setting, there are many other subjects that can actually be taught in a similar way. 

Take for instance, music. 

It is very easy to teach music and introduce kids to music in the homeschool environment. 

Having a movie musical night and watching a movie musical is one such activity that everyone in the family will enjoy, while still enabling you to introduce your kids to music appreciation in the comfort of your home. 

So in this post, I’m going to explain how you can set up a musical movie night at home. 

I have also included printables you can use to take your kids’ learning to the next level. 


Pick A Movie

Yes, the first step will be to pick a musical that is age appropriate in content for all your kids. 

Next, it has to be one that everyone will enjoy, including the adults in the family, or else this is not going to be a fun filled family experience. 


Find It

Once you’ve settled on the movie you want to watch, it is time to find it either at the library or make sure you can stream the movie.

Pick A Day

Pick a day. Don’t haphazardly expect to get the family together one evening and watch the movie. 

It is better for you to clear out your calendar, make sure everyone is available, tell them that it is family movie night and that it is in fact a big deal. 

Get the kids excited. 


Bring Out The Snacks

Allow your kids to pick out the snacks and even make the snacks for the movie night. 

Remember, to keep the excitement and the enthusiasm high. 

This will make it really enjoyable for everyone and they will likely have really good memories and want to repeat it all over again. 


Watch, Weep, Work

At the designated time, on the selected day watch the movie, sing, laugh, cry, get into the movie with the kids and don’t be shy to show your emotions and really enjoy the movie. 

Use the printables I have made available to take your kids’ learning to the next level. 


Rinse And Repeat

Once, you’ve had one successful movie night, why don’t you make it a frequent occurrence? 

Plan to have a musical movie night, once a month or so. 


So, what do you think? 

Can you plan a movie night with your kids and help them appreciate music more? 

Comment below and let me know how musical movie nights have impacted your homeschool music endeavours.

My daughter loved the games, but there were also worksheets and videos. The weekly lesson plans were complete, and I never questioned what I should be doing next.
