Compose Your Family's Theme Music
Win the family reunion touch football game? Sing YOUR song! Kid rocks out during a piano recital? Sing YOUR song! Got a parking ticket picking up the kids from school? Um, well, go ahead—SING YOUR SONG!
Get the family together and jot down everyone's lyrical thoughts. If you need a kick-start, try coming up with the melody from one of your favorite songs (like Ziggy's Family Time at iTunes). Rhyme the name of each person in the family with a fun fact, for example, "Our mommy's name is Ann, she drives a minivan. Usually she makes a home-cooked meal, but sometimes it's from a can!"
Once you get going, make up a fun verse for everyone so each kid (and parent) gets a chance to be the star. Who wouldn't want to be the subject in a rockin' song?
If your inner-Bono is failing you and you're just not moved by words, tap someone else's and throw your family name in there. Shout out some, "We are fam-i-ly, I got all my Marleys with me! We are fam-i-ly, get up all you Marleys and SING!" Doesn't matter if you pen your song like Ziggy himself or just need to borrow a pop lyricists' words—the idea here is to bond with your kiddies through music and have some family fun, so sing it loud and sing it proud
