Music and Movement
- Homemade rhythm instruments, real musical instruments, such as piano or guitar, or recorded music
- The goal of this activity is to have your child experience movement as it relates to music or rhythm.
- Play different types of music and have your child physically express how the music makes him feel: run for fast music, tiptoe for soft music, hop and bounce for happy music, march for a parade tune, and so on.
- You can also tap out a rhythmic beat and encourage your child to clap or hop in time to the beat.
