Pick a Song, Any Song

Use this idea the next time you need to fill your day with music!

Together with your child, choose your favorite songs to sing. Write the names of the songs on index cards or squares of paper and place them in a box. When your child needs an activity to do, draw out one of the titles and sing it together. As you learn new songs, put them in the box, too.
