There are so many reasons (too many to fit in one post 🙂) why music is an amazing way to help babies learn and grow! Over the next several days, I am going to share a few starting with the one below:
1️⃣ Babies are highly multimodal learners and music can be a very multimodal experience! We often naturally make it multimodal by moving with our babies as we sing, singing while gesturing, combining singing and touch, and playing musical instruments.
Pictured is one of our very favourite instruments to use in musical play, the rainstick! It’s been a motivator for my girls during tummy time because they love to watch the colourful beads move inside while hearing the nice water sound. They also love to reach out to touch it. Definitely recommend 😊
