A few days ago, the family formed an impromptu band and entertained Veronika. Today it was her turn to play! Make sure your child is sitting comfortably for this game; if he or she can’t sit unsupported yet, add a pillow so there’s no falling over near the “drums”!
I set out a few small pots, and gave her a variety of tools with which she could make percussive sounds. We had fun testing the differences between each one.
The whisk was soft but very metallic.
The wooden spoon made a fun boom boom.
You can even hit the pans with a baby rattle or plastic spoon! And of course I demonstrated simply drumming with my hand.
In all honesty, Veronika had way more fun putting each item in her mouth than drumming with them.
But she looked so pleased every time she made a sound by accident.
Drum drum drum!
