On Sunday, June 21, we rocked out with 5,320 other parents and children at the Sonar Kids festival in Barcelona. Sonar Kids is a music (mainly alternative, hip hop and electronic). The event was so well-planned and organized, I was surprised that it was the inaugural kid-friendly version of the ever-popular Sonar, Barcelona's International Festival of Advanced Music and Multimedia Art.
We learned what to do with two turntables and a microphone, got our groove on with a hip hop class and watched insanely crazy and funny puppets plot a Puppet Revolution. You really have to check out this rhyme slingin' puppets courtesy of PuppetMastaz.
There was so many activities (from beatboxing to skateboarding) for all ages that we couldn't do everything. In the chill-out area, there were 30,000 Legos to construct, a dream skate park for finger skating and picnic tables with nearby beer and snacks for the grown-ups.
In the creative arts area, children created a spider's web tangle out of colorful electrical tape, made felt masks, painted murals and knitted funky stuffed animals.
