The benefits of early sharedbook reading have long been established, but what about shared music making with your toddler?
New findings are showing that shared music making with your 2-3 year old, as well as being lots of fun can really boost their social/emotional, and cognitive learning.
What does shared music making look like? Just getting down and jamming with your toddler with different musical instruments, making up songs, singing in the bathtub, car, in bed, at the park!
Keeping it simple and most importantly fun is the key here. The combination of creativity, face to face interaction, and sound all go a long way to boosting developing literacy and numeracy.
