Play and Creativity Using Music: What Can Become an Instrument

How can music activities at home encourage play and creativity in children?  

Play is one of the most important parts of early childhood.  When a child is engaging in play they are building their brains to develop skills in math, reading, and social skills.  Trial and error discoveries in play are what lead to imagination and creativity.  There are many ways that parents can promote play and creativity through music at home.   

What Can Become an Instrument

Children love to make their own music.  There are musical instruments all around them.
