Musical Rumpus: Actions & Repetition

Posted on

Children love joining in with repeated sounds and actions.

The button proved a great invitation for repeated button-pressing by children and interaction with singers (Lyrebird, December 2015).

Try these activities at home!

Use a song your child knows and add repeated verses and actions to invite them to join in.

Make up simple songs or chants to accompany everyday actions such as brushing teeth.

Sing & Dance to this…
