Let your children feel live music at home!
What to do
First of all, we need 2 - 3 kitchen utensils as “drum sticks” such as spoons, brushes, whisks, etc. At the same time, we need 5 - 6 containers which are different sizes. Containers are the “drums”. However, it’s not necessary to fix the place of the “drums”. You can let your child choose. When your child is ready, you can choose some up-beat music and get your child to drum along to it. Children will really enjoy playing along to the music!
You will need
- 2 - 3 kitchen utensils
- 5 - 6 containers (boxes/pots/pans)
- Enjoy music; try to imitate percussionists.
- Fine motor skills: try to control the movements of their hands freely.
Ask your child
- What are these?
- What different sounds can you hear when you hit the drums?
