World Music Day, also known as Make Music Day, falls on the 21st of June and is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the universal language of music in early years education.
Here are some ideas for activities that can be done:
Music from Around the World: Introduce children to music from different countries. Discuss the instruments, rhythms, and styles of music from each culture.
Instrument Making: Use recycled materials to create simple musical instruments like shakers, drums, or flutes. This can also be a good opportunity to discuss sustainability and recycling.
Dance: Teach children traditional dances from different cultures. This can be a fun, physical activity that also helps children learn about the world.
Guest Musicians: If possible, invite musicians from the local community to perform for the children. This could be a great way for them to see and hear different musical instruments in action.
Remember, the objective of World Music Day is to make music accessible to everyone and to celebrate its unifying power. The activities you plan should be inclusive, engaging, and most importantly, fun for the children.
