“The sky is falling!” – We’ve all heard this line repeated numerous times in the story of Chicken Little. Light-hearted, comical and adventurous, this eventful musical not only keeps the kids entertained, it also teaches them important lessons that they can apply to real-life situations.
How to overcome their fears and to gain courage in difficult situations
Despite being afraid of every potential danger, Chicken Little remains strong and insists on pursuing a way to help save the world. The musical is a great platform for kids to learn about overcoming their fears and gain courage in difficult situations, and it’s an opportunity for parents to discuss the matter with them. For example, parents can talk about the things Chicken Little was so frantic about, relate it to their child’s fear of darkness and help them to see that there is nothing to be afraid of – once they understand the rationale behind their fears, they can gradually overcome them.
How to focus on logic and reasoning instead of panicking and jumping to conclusions
Given her panicky nature, Chicken Little often exaggerates small accidents and assumes it to be a sign of “the sky falling”, which could lead to the possible end of the world. However, as children follow her on her bubbly adventure, they will realise that you do not have to jump to conclusions too quickly as it’s easy to think the worse of every situation. Sometimes, you can take a step back and think calmly about the situation – it might not be that serious after all!
Learning about singing, dancing and acting through musical theatre
It’s never too early to introduce a child to the arts, and what better way to do it than with a quirky musical that embodies important life lessons! Theatre also teaches children critical thinking while exposing your child to various art forms. Not only are children relaxed by hearing joyful melodies, but learning to imitate the on-stage performers act and dance also spurs the growth of their motor-skills.
