As the school year draws to a close, school plays and spring musicals are just around the corner. Whether you were Sandy in your high school’s adaptation of Grease or have two left feet and sing off-key (we’re not judging!), we have some titles that will get you and your kids singing along to some popular show tunes. And although you may not realize it – or be willing to admit it – you probably know the words to more than you’d think!
Ready to get started?
Check out this list of titles to stream on Netflix, then share one of your favorites with your kids. For older kids, we’ve pulled a list of our favorite musicals, and for little ones, we have a few fun sing-a-longs (perfect if you need something other than Let It Go in your head).
No Sew Stage Curtain
Now that your all excited why not throw your own musical in your house? Netflix has offered a great DIY Craft Tutorial on Making a No Sew Stage Curtain. Check it out below:
- Tension rod to fit your doorway
- Fabric to fit your doorway
- Different colors of felt
- Liquid Stitch Glue
- Measuring tape
- Self-adhesive Velcro dots (optional)
- Straight pins
- Piece of paper
Step 1: Using your measuring tape to measure your doorway, determine how long and wide your fabric should be, leaving at least one additional inch on each side and bottom and four additional inches on the top. Use the straight pins to hold your hems in place. Once you have the hems exactly how you want them, drizzle Liquid Stitch Glue onto the fabric to hold the hems in place. Let dry. Tip: Glue the top of the curtain last so your tension rod can easily slide through the hole.
Step 2: Draw a triangle shape onto a piece of paper and cut it out. This will by your triangle bunting template. Pin the template onto the felt and cut the triangle out. Repeat until you get the desired amount of triangles you will need.
Step 3: Spread your curtain out on the floor. Place your felt triangles on it to determine where they look best. Once you’re happy with your placement, unravel your ribbon from the spool and lay over the tops of the triangles. This will help you determine how much ribbon you need for each strip of bunting. Cut the ribbon to your desired length. Then take the felt and ribbon off the curtain. Stretch your ribbon out and glue the tops of the triangle to the ribbon to create the bunting. Let dry.
Step 4: Once dry, place the bunting back onto the curtain and glue into place. Let dry.
Step 5: Fold the curtain in half lengthwise and create a crease in the fabric. With your scissors, carefully cut the fabric lengthwise, ¾ of the way up from the bottom.
Step 6: Insert your curtain rod in the top pocket and hang on your door. Optional: Adhere (or sew) self-adhesive Velcro dots to the curtains opening to help the curtain flaps stay closed.
TA_DA!! You are done and now can sing to your hearts content to your favorite musical or make your own!
