Want Your Kids to Be Musical? This "Noisy" Game Can Help! by Ekanem Ebinne
You don't have to spend cash or be a pro musician to get more music into your day. Forget that person who told you, "You can't sing." Truth is, you ARE musical and you can help your kids be their most musical, too. It's about connecting to each other with sounds. Enjoy this game:
Pick three noisy things, like keys, scrap paper, and a pot and spoon. Play them in one order, then listen and copy. Kids will notice you are copying. See how relaxed you can get during their "turn." Everyone likes to be heard and kids' music minds get sharper when they get even a little bit of engagement!
