Stuck for ideas this summer? Music is a natural part of everyday life for toddlers. I watch my little ones dance around to any and everything around them each and every day. Even if we don’t have any music playing. They’ll make up their own songs. They’ll sing to their toys.
Music provides a diverse, happy sensory environment for children, fostering joy and confidence. Exposing our kids to a wide variety of sounds, textures, colours and musical experiences stimulates their brain cells the same way it does us. If no other reason than by providing joy.
Introducing musical games doesn’t have to be pricey or time consuming. I’ve chosen some of my favourite DIY instrument and game ideas to share with you if you think your own little ones would benefit from having more music integrated into their every-day exploring, discovery, learning and play this summer…
