Summer Songs, Games and Musical Instruments
June 11 & 13 | Cost: $39
Day 1: GAMES - There are a lot of reasons to encourage your child to get out and play. In this session your child will learn some old fashion games and crafts to do when they need to get outside to use some of that youthful energy. All games will have handouts and we will make any game pieces that you will need. We will also have a snack and drinks to make the day even more enjoyable! These games are fun, easy and great for those summer afternoons when all you hear is “Mom, there is nothing to do!”
Day 2: SONGS, CHANTS & DANCES - Come enjoy a day filled with music! We will start our session by making some instruments from recycled objects. Then we will strike up the band! We will try our hand at playing some simple tunes and chants! Along with the chants, we will learn some circle games. We will follow that with some folk dancing! We will do a simple square dance and a German folk dance. Wear your comfortable shoes so you can move to the beat of that different drummer! Snacks and drinks are included!
