We hear from families all the time that Kindermusik is THE highlight of their child’s week. Grownups connect and bond with their child in special ways as they gain insight into how a love for music is fostered and how skill in music is developed from the very early years. In class, children bond with their teacher, learn about music, and bask in the one-on-one time with their grown-up as we all make music together. Everyone enjoys the chance to make new friends and keep up with old friends.
But Kindermusik day doesn’t have to be the only day that you enjoy Kindermusik. The best part of Kindermusik is that you have your Kindermusik every day at home throughout the week! Here are some favorite ways to make every day a Kindermusik day all week long.
Play your Music CD. With each new unit, you receive a CD to take home with you. As you take this home, you’re taking home all the songs that were played in class, and more! Watch your child light up as he recognizes songs and starts doing Kindermusik class at home. (By the way, the same music on your CD is also available to stream through my.Kindermusik.com!)
Check out the Kindermusik @Home videos and activities in your Kindermusik library – also new with each unit! Because you are enrolled in Kindermusik, you have access to various fun videos and activities; in fact, your Kindermusik library grows the longer you are enrolled. When you log in to my.Kindermusik.com, you can go on a video scavenger hunt during play time, play a fun game, find age-appropriate craft ideas, or learn more about using music to enhance your child’s development.
Turn ordinary household items or toys into instruments and play along! You might not have sticks or bells or other Kindermusik instruments at home, but you can use items at home to play right along with the music on your CD or streaming on your phone. Those spoons, rattles, or tissues will never be the same again!
Have a Kindermusik playdate at your home and invite others! What a great way to bring Kindermusik home! Invite some friends from class or introduce other friends to Kindermusik by having a playdate in your home. You can do an activity, listen and play along with the music, or any other wonderful idea you would like to do. And then of course, invite your friends to your Kindermusik class so that you can all enjoy class together like musical friends should!
