15 Minutes : Play It : Music Time

My little boy really responds to music so I have tried to set aside more time for a "mommy & me" singing time. It's not much longer than 15 minutes but he sure does love the songs and pictures/objects we play with.

For example, for our first singing time one of the songs we sang was "Five Little Speckled Frogs", I let him hold some fake bugs I had while we sang "eating the most delicious bugs" and when the frogs "jumped into the pool" I had him jump onto a blue blanket . I hope to build on ideas, props and activities but for now they have been simple and with things I have around the house.

You may be surprised how well your child responds to music and a little bit of structure.
