One of the best ways to keep things light and fun in family life is to add music. It can instantly change the mood and lift the spirits of the whole gang when you crank up some tunes. My family is really big on dance parties. We dance to celebrate a good day. We dance when everyone is crabby to change things up. We dance in the car to make rides more fun. We have introduced our kids to some of our classic favorites: from James Taylor to Jay-Z, Fleetwood Mac to Foo Fighters. Michael Jackson is big in our house right now. We’ve always been grateful that our kids don’t insist on listening to Mickey Mouse or Elmo or the Frozen Soundtrack. Because kids’ music — ugh! Why does it have to be so BAD? But I recently discovered music made for kids that is fun and educational but is still music to parents’ ears as well. Enter The Raging Kidiots!
The newest album from entertainer Bobby Bones, The Raging Kidiots is full of catchy tunes that kids will love because they are really silly and fun. But more importantly, parents will love them too. The songs teach kids how to remember the order of the planets and the important people in American History and pop culture. And other songs, like Be Nice (“because your mama said so, even when she says no…”) help to remind kids about good behavior through fun lyrics.
You can download the album in iTunes now. I love having access to it in my iTunes account so I can play it at home through our Apple TV or in the car through the bluetooth capabilities on my phone (or just from your phone if your car isn’t bluetooth enabled). I even play it in the boys’ room through their bluetooth speakers. This is the one kid album that doesn’t make me want to put in ear plugs 🙂
Does your family love music and dance parties? Are you stuck listening to ‘Let It Go’ on repeat or do your kids allow for more parent-friendly songs? I can’t wait to hear what you think about The Raging Kidiots!
