I started a new class on Friday: Parent/Child Music & Movement. It was so JOYFUL! This class is geared toward children from 6 months old to 5 years old. Each child is able to participate in ways that are appropriate for their personal stage in development. We started in a circle and greeted each other with a hello song. Then we sang familiar songs with movements. There was also some instrument experimentation! We played egg shakers and jingle bells. In future classes we will use rhythm sticks, drums, and colorful scarves to move with. There were also some songs to dance to! The kids seemed to have a lot of fun! Some of the kiddos needed some time to warm up to the space, and even with a parent by their side, that is to be expected. Each child becomes comfortable with the space and activities in their own time.
This class is offered at The New Ulm Wellness Collective on Friday mornings at 10:30am. You can register for an entire series, just one class, or just drop in when it works for you. The class runs from 3/3/23 to 5/12/23 (No class on 4/7). Register at www.morethanmusicmn.com/services
