wooden/ plastic serving spoons
anything else in your kitchen that looks like a fun instrument
Step 1: Present your child with serving spoon
Step 2: Invite them to tap on various cookware with the spoon and/ or their hands, demonstrating different rhythms
Step 3: Choose a favorite song (preferably one that your child is already familiar with) and demonstrate tapping the rhythm on the assembled cookware. See if they join in!
music playing device
Step 1: Find a recording of the song you and your child just played together in your Kitchen Orchestra (or another family favorite)
Step 2: Hold your little one and sway/ bounce to the beat! (For slightly bigger little ones, stand facing them, holding their hands and encourage them to sway/ bounce with you)
Step 3: Play other songs with different tempos and rhythms, and experience swaying/ bouncing to them
Challenge: Once you have mastered the sway and/ or bounce, make up your own dance moves... but don't loose the beat!
*Don't forget to post pictures of you and your little one doing these activities to our Facebook Page with the hashtag #spellboundsounds!
Take it away, maestros!
