My eldest son has only recently been introduced to Scooby-Doo, a show I was all too familiar with growing up. I love it how life comes full circle and how I am now able to share these memories with my own kids.
I was SO excited to hear that the show is coming to South Africa for two reasons. Firstly, I love theatre and think it’s such a great way to bring a little bit of culture into the way we entertain our children. There’s is something so magical about a real life performance that opens up a child’s imagination in ways a television never could.
The other reason is because I’m starting to realise that children value experiences and the making of memories. With christmas around the corner, many of us are under pressure to once again buy all the things we think our kids want. And while kids are kids and presents are always welcomed with excited eyes, I’ve realised that many kids just want to be with their parents and have quality time doing special things. They really value time over material gifts. Go figure!
This is such a perfect opportunity to take them to see a show that the whole family will enjoy, a wonderful way to start the holidays and remind our children what the festive season is all about : Being together, being grateful for what we have and creating the most special memories of togetherness.
Here’s what you may want to know about the show!
