Songs and Music

Sing, dance, and make music together

Singing together is a powerful way to build up the family structure. It activates the soothing parts of the brain.
  • Play instruments together - use real instruments if you have them or saucepans for drums, make paper plate and beans shakers, anything becomes an instrument.
  • Sing songs and favourite lullabies
  • Dance around to all kinds of funky music - see Spotify or You tube for ideas
  • Make a family song book and illustrate it.
  • Listen to favourite artists and talk about what you like about their music (not their ‘image’ but their music). Whether you have a beautiful voice or not, it doesn't matter to your children. Sing anyway!
