A story and a song today that can take you almost anywhere!
It is about finding out who we are and how we fit in. And about how we can cope when things go wrong, or people are unkind – about not giving up
Or it is about how we change as we grow and learn new things
Or about birds, wildlife and nature
Mainly it is a fun way to enjoy a story or singing a song together, and along the way your child will learn lots about words and sequences too
You don’t need expensive equipment to make music. Any household object has a playful tune in it if only we look or listen hard enough.
Music can express our deepest feelings and draw us together as families and communities
It is also an excuse to make a racket and have fun!
Today’s idea is all about children playing with rhythm and different sounds. Without even realising, this will develop their coordination and attention skills
It is also a great way to feel close, take turns and enjoy being together
Almost anything can be a musical instrument – some ideas in the sheet below. Make sure you keep an eye on your child so they are playing safely!
