If you were hoping for some peace and quiet at home today, we’re sorry in advance! Today’s Mini Stagelighter lesson is all about noise, rhythm, and discovery.
Grab all the pots and pans you have and create a drum kit. Don’t forget to include metal and plastic bowls too for a variety in sounds. Now, hand over a wooden spoon, standard spoon from your silverware set, and any other kitchen tools you think might inspire some rhythmic creativity for your little one.
Let your Mini start out with just playing and getting familiar with the various sounds his or her drum kit produces. Then, play some Kidz Bop and encourage your Mini to play rhythms that complement the songs and beats in the music.
Have fun, and send a video or picture of your Mini drum star at firstname.lastname@example.org (or on social @stagelightarts).
