I have put together many ideas for music activities at home! These activities and websites involve plenty of music, movement, and creation! The orange text will lead you to an activity! Click on it and a link will come up to the website!
Thanks, Mr. Murrett
This is a website for orchestrapractice! It allows the children to go through the orchestra families and learn more about each instrument!
Dance to your own music with ribbon rings. This website has a simple tutorial on how to make your own ribbon and rings.
Create and play a homemade harmonica. Your preschoolers can make their own! Housing a Forest created easy harmonicas using craft sticks and rubber bands.
Creating your own percussion instrument! Egg shakers in this DIY version from this website using clear plastic eggs and colored sand for visual fun.
Have fun doing the plate dance. This website uses two paper plates as cymbal-like percussion instruments. This dance reinforces fast, slow, softly, loudly, behind our backs, under our legs, above our heads, and you can also rub them together to produce a totally different sound.
Have a quick movement break. This movement song challenges body awareness, motor planning, and so much more!
Make a rainbow music stick. Preschool Powol Packets shows how fine motor skills are developed while making rainbow music sticks.
Have a collection of music on hand. We love action songs for that get-up and move moments. Having a collection makes it easy to stop and move at any time!
Watch this series of videos with daily activities that both you and your child can complete! Each video will get progressively harder, incorporating basic music theory knowledge and math skills! These videos are suitable for children in grades 1-4 and are made as a simple, quick exercise to keep them engaged in music!
