Musical time

Everyone loves and enjoys music, so why not embrace it with your child and play some musical games with them once or twice a week to get them familiar with the tunes?

Get a few toy instruments such as maracas, drums, guitars, tambourines, and harmonicas from the store. Get the kids to sit in a circle and give each child an instrument. Each child plays their instrument and then explains what kind of sound it makes.

Purchase a children's songs CD and play it in the stereo. Get up and have a dance with the kids and dance to the music. Get the children to recognize different chords and sounds in the music.

Belt your lungs out by taking it in turns to sing a song each. Get children to work on their voices and get them to sing a chorus from their favourite song. You do it as well, even if you're a bad singer.

Play some musical statues. Play some music and then stop it and everyone has to freeze. Instead of sending children out, get them to answer a musical question if they want to stay back in the game.

Teach children about different instruments, then play a few songs and get them to identify what sort of instruments they heard.

Play some classic songs for them, songs that you liked when you were growing up, perhaps from an old metal band or The Beatles, Michael Jackson or whoever. Get the kids to become a fan just like you.

Teach the kids a musical instrument for something to do. Guitar, drums, flute or whatever you're good at. Kids will love this, and it's a great way to spend time together.
