We changed up arts and crafts time this weekend by getting my drums out of storage and the ukelele out of it’s case. Music helps preschoolers flex their creative muscles, exploring and discovering different sounds and their combinations, just like process art explores the different combinations and possibilities of visual materials. There is the added benefit of rhythm and a lot of physical movement while creating, listening, singing, and dancing.
- He sang his A, B, C’s and we made up silly songs.
- He experimented with the different sounds of each drum and played with rhythms.
- He tried again and again to show me some chords on the ukelele.
- We danced. Preschoolers are the best dancers.
I hope you all have a creative, calm, and music filled week.
