Music time and musical exploration is such an important part of a preschool education. Children thrive when they are able to dance, and play and express themselves with musical instruments.

One thing I sometimes feel like my children miss out on when we homeschool, is a fun music time with those awesome wooden instruments I remember playing in school when I was little. They don’t have to miss out though, there are so many creative and super fun musical instruments that you can make in your very own home! These would be great for a craft time, or during a music study, or just for fun play.
