Best Kids Sing Along Shows & Movies on Netflix

Kids love music, and for good reason… It inspires creativity and can make you feel so good inside that you want to get up and move your body.

How to Use Musicals in Homeschooling

Sing-along shows and movies can be incorporated into homeschooling, much in the way we use Educational Shows & Documentaries in our homeschool planning.

Here are a few ideas you can implement with sing-along shows & movies.

  1. Create a dance. Kids can create a dance that goes to their favorite song and perform it for you. Then they can teach it to you for extra fun.
  2. Create a song. Often kids are inspired by the music they hear, so ask them to create a song for you and perform it.
  3. Write a poem. Maybe creating a song isn’t your kid’s jam, so ask them to write a poem.
  4. Write a report. I explain how we do reports from TV shows on our Educational Shows for Homeschoolers on Netflix post.

If you need a break from all of the singing and dancing, be sure to check out my lists for the Best Animated Family Movies and the Best Non-Animated Family Movies on Netflix.

If you’ve watched everything there is to see on Netflix, there’s always Hulu, Disney+, Curiosity Stream (a documentary focused online entertainment service that’s less than $20 per year) and Amazon Prime Video!
