I spent more years than I care to admit sitting criss-cross applesauce on the floor surrounded by other parents singing songs and playing with random noise-making accoutrements. Why did I subject myself to such torture? Because my kids LOVED it.
It didn’t take long for me to realize that both of my kids lived for making music, and studies show that children who play musical instruments are more likely to excel in all of their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, stay in school, and pursue further education.
It was high time to add a few kid-approved instruments to our personal collection. Here are some fun items to get your future musician ready for touring the universe.
