Bring Music into your Everyday Life and have a Blast Together!
So glad you enjoy singing in baby and toddler music classes! We hear from many Rainbow Songs families about how their children sing the music class songs at home. And even some children perform their own music circle with their family and stuffies! We love to encourage music making in your daily life and hope that our music classes and movement activities help bring more songs into your life.
Here’s a top 5 list of ways you can encourage a love of music at home!
Singing is a wonderful feel-good activity and even more enjoyable when you do it together! (The science supports this as natural endorphins are released when you sing). Don’t be shy! Your child loves the sound of your voice because they love you.
Have Dance Party
Are you ready to boogie? Any engaging music that gets you and your child up and moving will make you both have a great afternoon. Not only that, but parents have a blast dancing to silly music while their baby and toddler and get exercise too! Try to remember some of the baby and toddler activities that we do from class!
Listen to Whatever Music you Love
Make daily life more fun by integrating music into your regular activities! For example, sing lullabies at bedtime, listen to music with a story while in the car, have morning songs that you play while getting dressed or eating breakfast. Not sure where to start looking for kids music? Rainbow Songs has produced 7 award-winning children’s music CDs. , featuring class favourites, classic baby songs and toddler tunes, and a few original numbers too. Whatever music you enjoy, share it with your child.
Create a Family Jam Band!
Pull out the pots and pans, have a craft and music day and have fun making your own family band while singing fun songs together! You can buy some of the quality, child-friendly instruments used during the Rainbow Songs jam sessions here in our online shop.
Add Silly Songs to Boring Parts of Your Day
Stuck in traffic? Waiting in line? Sing a silly song! Counting songs, colour songs and body part songs are great for learning and fun, as well as are transportation songs. Do actions to the song to make it even more fun. Your baby or toddler will find those dull moments entertaining, and so will you!
