Music - Maracas

We’ve reached the final week of our music fun. This week we are going to have some fun putting together a Music Festival Kids Party and I’ll show you how to make your own Maracas.  Often overlooked as a child's toy these maracas are in so many songs and add a very odd rhythm to music, a little like reggae music where you get that extra little beat.  Here is a good example of some music with Maracas

Music - Hand Drum

Music - Hand Drum

Another week and another chance for us to get our kids into music.  This time I have included a drum.  I find that out of all the instruments kids love, drums are at the top.  This drum is great because I think it will take kids a few attempts to really get the rhythm of it.  When things present a little challenge to kids they like it more once they have overcome it.  It comes from being proud and feeling accomplished.

It's been a fantastic month but also a very busy month, I touch on this a little in my last post The Complete Guide to Fathers Day 2018.  We have not long got back from a visit to Ireland where I was doing some shows but I also took my family with me and I think in total we had about 48hrs in Ireland to have fun. So I thought it would be great to mention a few things that we got to do and some things that you really shouldn't miss.
