Music - Maracas

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 takes some of the worst villains from Disney, namely Jaffar, Cruella, The Evil Queen and worst of all Maleficent! who have now all had children of their own attending high school with the children from the Disney prince’s and princess’s.

I have two different Party invite designs,  Condiment labels which could be used on Ketchup, Mustard and pickle or if you find the different coloured bottles of ketchup, you can just use three different colours of ketchup on something like hotdogs for a birthday party treat.
