Teach My Toddler Tuesday - Music
We hope you enjoyed our activity last week and look forward to sharing many more with you soon. First, I wanted to share a bit of background on who KiwiCo is. So here we go, KiwiCo is a monthly subscription crate that comes filled with age appropriate STEAM projects for kids, from toddlers to teenagers. STEAM stands for science, technology, engineering, art, and math. Each crate explores a different theme designed to spark creativity, thinking, and learning.
This week we received a Koala Crate from our friends at KiwiCo and I don't know who was more excited me or Sofia lol! Sofia is a huge lover of music, which I hope continues, so this activity crate was so exciting for her. Best of all it allowed us to try a crate at a higher age level, as Koala Crates are typically for kids ages 3-4.
To start off the activity, we were pleasantly surprised to see that we wouldn't only be creating one instrument but three different items: a xylophone, tambourine and dancing streamer. I let Sofia choose and she decided to start with the xylophone. Plus, we even created our own music! (see photo three below)
I have never seen my daughter light up at an activity like I did this one. She absolutely loved it and would have played for the rest of the day with the xylophone if I hadn't shown her the other parts of the activity we had left. Next, we made our way to creating our Koala tambourine. A super easy activity which complimented the xylophone and allowed Sofia and I to play "her" music as she called it.
I can't stress it enough, but what I love most about KiwiCo is that each crate is filled with age appropriate STEAM projects for kids and sparks a creativity that most activities tend to lack for toddlers. Sofia is at an age where her attention span is pretty short, but with KiwiCo she can play for days. Best of all the crate also comes with an activity booklet that allows for continued learning!
Lastly, we finished the day creating our dancing streamer and left it to dry. I have a feeling my little one will be up early in the AM tomorrow asking for her own personal band and I can't wait to play along.
