It’s no surprise that my kids love music. Especially attending concerts. Given that their daddy is a musician, they’ve been introduced to it since birth, from the womb and nearly every-day there-after.
Home concerts are the best. Going to a festival, even better.
Lately, my eldest has begun to develop this particular type of dance-style, similar to that of the interpretive dance variety. It’s quite the thing to see. I go between smiling and laughing to admiring his sense of rhythm as each jerk, each halt, each break in his fresh moves – falls in time with that of the bass or drums.
We’re at a really fun stage of development wherein my kids are highly social, seeming to thrive on interaction and their little minds buzzing with stimulation over all that is art and music. Which is why, this afternoon as we pack up for a week-long camping trip; I’m putting the final touches on glow-in-the-dark hula hoops and Waldorf dancing rings.
I got the idea at the last festival we attended, Wyndham loved dancing with the hula hoops a volunteer shared with him and my friend’s mom had the great idea of making them glow-in-the-dark with fluorescent tape and reflective tape! The Waldorf dancing rings? Extra large wooden curtain rings with ribbon streamers tied to them my friends. Kids love that action. I’m also making a couple of dancing wands with them when we’re up at the campsite as one of our activities. I’ll be posting some of those DIYs here or on my personal blog and linking from here so keep your eyes peeled!
Also, hold me. Because you heard that part about how I’m leaving to go camping for a week with two toddlers right?
