Growing up my musical instrument of choice was the guitar.
Playing Christmas songs was one of my favorite parts about playing the guitar.
My children don’t “officially” play a musical instrument yet, but we still like to make noise and dance around!
By providing opportunities to play and experiment with different materials allows your child to learn and extend their creative knowledge.
STEAM is the combination of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math. Integrating STEAM based play is an easy and innovative way to enrich your child’s learning.
