Music is a natural part of life for toddlers. Between the ages of 1 and 3, kids respond best to music when they actively experience it. Passive listening (like in the car) is fine, but look for opportunities to get your child rocking, marching, rolling, tapping, clapping, and moving to the beat
If you’d like to introduce an instrument, keep it simple. Very young toddlers will enjoy instruments they can shake — bells, rattles, shakers, tambourines, or rain sticks. As your child gets older and a little more coordinated, try rhythm instruments that can be banged, like drums, cymbals, or xylophones.
Here is my boy having so much fun enjoying his favorite instruments!! He loves musics and his rhythm is perfect!!!
- Materials needed : drum, xylophone, tambourine, clapper, maracas, triangle, cymbal and etc
- Description : Play with musical instruments to make sound
- What I like about it : It is fun to to introduce musical instruments to him and let him explore sound making with movements. It also helps to develop control of his hands and fingers.
