Carnival of Music and Song

dancing with children

Can’t sing? Tone deaf? Two left feet? Children just don’t care! Whether it’s clapping along to nursery rhymes, banging out a rhythm with a wooden spoon on a saucepan or disco dancing in the kitchen on a dull and dreary day, music and song is a fun and learning activity all children can enjoy.

Come and celebrate all things musical with us and add your post to the Carnival of Music and Song play. How do you enjoy music with your children? Whether you have a new post or one from your archive please share an idea with us as we build up a resource of ideas we can use whenever we need some inspiration.

I’ve shared a vlog about multi-sensory play, showing how L loves to combine song, maths and art all in one, and a post about songbags and how they can be a springboard for lots of singing and language development. I’m looking forward to seeing (and maybe hearing!) your ideas too.

    Hi Cathy – I am very late to the party on this one (where does the time go?) but I have added a link to Karen Sherr’s blog at Learning Made Fun – Karen is a former play specialist at Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital and she set up Musical Minis 21 years ago, I’m working with Karen on raising awareness of the Musical Minis groups – both from the point of view of what fun they are for pre-school kids and their parents to go along to, but also as a possible business opportunity for mums or dads. Anyway, the thing is (and hence me wittering on here) quite often people seem to think Musical Minis is all about producing young music prodigies and learning to play the instruments – and it isn’t, it’s just about fun. Right, glad to have got that off my chest, thank you for doing this carnival and thank you for the link-up which I have added to. x
