2 Year Olds Teach Us about Music and Art!

The zen of creating music and art at two years old!
Two year old's teach us that it's the "process" that counts. They enjoy dancing, doing finger plays, acting out songs and creating rhythm. Using their new found motor skills 2 year old's enjoy making sounds by banging on household items. Give your child an old pot and some wooden spoons. They love to explore. Put some beans in a container and let them shake it! They enjoy the sensory pleasures of creating art and music. Two year old's teach us that it's the process and not the final product which counts! So the next time your 2 year old starts to bang on something, don't scold them, grab a spoon and bang along!
Music for Kids!
