Make Some Sound Makers
Updated: Mar 15, 2022
When joining in with music sessions, it’s great to have everyone singing, dancing, clapping and shaking. Everyone joining in and making music together gives us the release of endorphins and other positive hormones whether in person or online. Music gives us connection with those around them and music builds the foundation of our communication system when we’re babies. The pattern of a mother’s heartbeat is one of the first things we recognise.
Sound exploration can take many forms and exposing our babies and children to a variety of sounds encourages their understanding of sound and language.
We don’t need lots of expensive instruments to create these experiences. Please explore the pictures and activities below of great sound makers you can find around the house and some ideas of how to build your own sound makers. Let’s get creative...
NB: always supervise children when using small parts and scissors.
