The songs and ideas on this website are constantly generating new
songs and ideas! To make it easy for you to keep up, this page will
list any new ideas chronologically. Just check this page at least
once a month, and read down until you get to a tip you’ve already
read. That way you won’t miss a thing!
New idea for super
easy-to-make sand blocks!
Cut “noodles” (long
plastic water/pool toys) into 3” lengths, and then cut each piece in
half lengthwise. You’ll have two half round pieces. An electric
knife works great, and gives you a nice clean cut. If you use a saw
or foam knife, you will have little foam pieces that will eventually
be sanded off with use.
Advantages: these are
colorful, inexpensive and quick to make, and unlike wooden sand
blocks, pleasantly quiet when children inevitably clap them
Variation on Story
song activity “See the Sounds”. Instead of holding up picture cut
from magazines, make enlargements of photos of your children engaged
in different activities, (quiet and loud).
