Recently I took my daughter to a local Christmas talent presentation. It was relaxing and enjoyable to be together. I think it is important to expose our children to different arts. It does not have to be expensive Broadway plays, operas, and ballets.
At this time of year there are many different inexpensive performances happening in the community. Why not try taking your family to a local showing of the Nutcracker, Christmas carol, or other musical performances.
In my town, there is a small Christmas opera that is playing this weekend at a local church, a ballet that is coming up, and a symphony rendition of The Messiah playing just before Christmas. Each of these events are $5 or less and they all sound like perfectly fun events!
So be sure to check out the local arts events that are going on in your community so that you help encourage your children to appreciate the arts. Also, it can help to demonstrate to your children the proper manners and respect that is appropriate when attending such events.
