Barbie Rock n’ Royals Contest alert with Giveaway #BeSuper

My children have always been great when it comes to expressing themselves! We encourage it and allow them to be themselves through music, art and sports. At a very young age it was obvious that music was an important part of each of their lives in some way. Music is freeing and lets the creativity flow. I love watching my kids act silly, be free and sing and dance like nobody is watching!

Whether your little one is a musical prodigy or simply enjoys singing along with the radio, music has many benefits for children.  From reducing stress, to encouraging us to stay active, to working a new area of our brains, music is a great addition to any child’s life.  Below you will find a few tips on how you can encourage your little one to express themselves through music.

Don’t Follow Directions.

You read that right! Many parents encourage their little ones in music through structured music lessons. But for many kids, music lessons can be stressful and monotonous. While following directions and reading music is important for any musician, finding your own beat is just as vital.  Encourage your daughter to break the rules once in a while by singing or playing a musical instrument however she pleases. This will give her the opportunity to fully express herself and have fun while doing it!

Try Making Music Together.

Music is a fun way to empower and express yourself. Making music with your little ones allows you to communicate with each other in a way that words cannot. Music will unlock your feelings, creativity and open the lines of communication. Initiate this with a fun music video singalong in your living room or having a fun family jam session. You never know, you may find that you’re a better singer than you thought!

Bust a Move.

It’s challenging to listen to music without moving to the rhythm! To help get your little ones moving and expressing themselves, try playing a variety of musical styles to inspire them. Dance along with them and encourage them to try new things too. You’ll be surprised where it takes you!

Remember that no matter how your little ones chooses to express themselves through music, we all approach music and the arts from a place of creative self-expression that should be encouraged. When we reinforce that there’s no right way, we can all have fun!
