If your children love music, (and what children don’t?) then keep reading as we take a look at some fun and interesting activities that you can do with your child to help them increase their interest and talent in the wonderful world of music.
When it comes to music, it was once believed that only certain types of music could increase a child’s spatial reasoning skills and expand their mind. While most children do enjoy classical music, research has shown that a child’s growing mind has a difficult time determining the differences in classical music stylings and many children can differentiate from song to song. Further research shows that playing music, any kind of music, in the house, has a powerful effect on a child’s mind, specifically their ability to learn and retain information.
With that being said, we are going to take a look at some fun musical activities that you can do with your children this summer. Let’s get started:
Make Homemade Musical Instruments- children love to make things and when it comes to making noise, they are the best. Have them turn everyday household items into musical instruments that they can use to put on a show and play their favourite songs with.
Sing To Children- whether you can sing well, or not, children love it when their parents sing to them. It’s an effective way to provide an early introduction to music to your children and perhaps spark their interest in singing themselves as you lull them to sleep, get them to clean their room, or inspire them to do something fun with their day.
Regularly Play Music In The Background- research shows that most children don’t really focus on the background music in their homes, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t getting any benefits from it. Playing appropriate music when they are doing their chores, studying or while taking a road trip will help children to associate their happy memories with music.
Learn Musical Instruments-one of the most direct ways to immerse your child in music, is to enable them to learn to play a musical instrument. Even very young children have the ability to learn these new skills and parents should encourage them any way they can.
