I often times get asked from friends if I have any tips for taking kids to Blue Man Group. Since I recently took Eleanor I thought I would share my tips for taking kids.
1. Prepare them
With so many things available on youtube I suggest showing the kids some clips. Understanding that it’s a person helps prepare your child for the experience and hopefully making sure they aren’t afraid of them.
2. Ask for a booster seat and ear protection
All the cities have these items and it’s better to be safe than sorry. The show can be loud so make sure you talk with the kids about this.
3. Go to the bathroom prior to the show
There is no intermission so I strongly suggest you get set in your seats and then head to the bathroom. Also, listen for the music, it’s one of my favorite little things!
4. Wear light colored clothes!
Just trust me on this. I don’t want to give it away, but I put Eleanor in a white dress and I wore a light pink top and it was her favorite part!
5. Bring a Camera or make sure your cell has enough juice
Usually after the show the Blue Man and band will do photos in the lobby. It’s a great memory and the kids will love it.
6. Allow them to laugh and have fun
The Blue Man Experience is about getting lost in the moment and creating a community together for 90 minutes. The kids will love it and so will you, so enjoy!
Bonus Tip: If you get Blue Man paint on your clothes the best way to get it out is to hand wash it with Dawn dish soap!
Do you have any other tips you would add for seeing Blue Man Group?
I was not compensated for this post. I do work for Blue Man Group, but these tips and opinions are my own as a parent.
