Music and Movement

Materials

  • Homemade rhythm instruments, real musical instruments, such as piano or guitar, or recorded music

Directions

  1. The goal of this activity is to have your child experience movement as it relates to music or rhythm.
  2. 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.
  3. You can also tap out a rhythmic beat and encourage your child to clap or hop in time to the beat.
