  • Young children love to sing, so sing everywhere - in the car, in the bathtub, at the store and at the table.

  • Make music with things you have in the house - pots, pans, spoons, boxes, cups. Crawl around on the floor with your child to the beat of the music.

  • Songs have a note for each part of a word, so when you sing you’re helping your child hear that words have smaller parts. Clap or tap along to better hear these smaller parts.
