Rythm sticks

Unsharpened pencils make very good rythm sticks. Bluebonnet likes "Little Drummer Boy," so this morning when we heard a recording of that I gave her two unsharpened pencils and showed her how to tap them together. We clapped, tapped, and marched, all through the song. She came surprisingly close to finding the beat of the song.

We have a constant stream of a variety of music in our home. I hope Bluebonnet is absorbing a lot of what is around here, musically.

Hi, Wynona. Just reading some comments on some of my older posts and came across yours. I somehow lost your blog! Sorry!
