This week’s theme is Music.
There are so many lovely activities you can do with music. Explore music you enjoy, dance, sing, experiment with our online links. You could have a go at making your own instruments. Most importantly have fun!
Bottle shaker- Fill an empty bottle with rice or dried beans. Decorate and shake to create your own maraca.
Use tins and saucepans to create a set of drums. You can stretch balloons over tin cans/ coffee tins too.
Create a water xylophone with jars and different levels of water. See how the sound changes as you tap each one. Play along to music with makeshift instruments in the home such as pans, Tupperware, pencils on a table.
Listen to different pieces of music such as theme tunes and draw pictures as a clue to what the music might be about.
Make a sound song with colours and shapes see photo
You can watch and talk about the animals or using some instruments at home or just cups, pots etc children can play along to the music making different sounds for different animals.
