Do you find that music helps you concentrate, or is it a distraction? Either way, you can’t deny that it has some impact on you and the task at hand. The effect of music on our subconscious is so powerful, that we often find it can influence our mood and outlook. The speed, volume, style, and lyrics (if any) can cause us to feel optimistic, relaxed, angry, nervous, excited…any emotion you can think of. The endorphins released when we feel particular emotions can have a direct effect on our output, our productivity, and our creativity! So how can we inspire creativity in children…?

Watching live music is a magical experience for young children. It is mesmerising to see musicians playing, singers singing, and dancers dancing. Live performance is inspiring and exciting, teaching children about different ways to move and learn. Furthermore, it can be used to encourage all forms of interaction, and spark your child’s imagination in ways you didn’t know were possible. Many orchestras, theatres, and town halls have music events for children. These are more relaxed performances, which allow children the chance to join in. Here are some of the most interesting music events for children in January 2018 – book your tickets now! Continue reading “January 2018: Music Events for Children”

There’s no denying, the excitement in December is completely infectious when you have little ones to share it with. Even if they are too young to understand the meaning of Christmas, they can still enjoy its magic. Christmas decorations, an increase in visitors, and mysterious parcels appearing around the house, are all indications to your toddler that something different is going on! However, if your child is anything like J, things can sometimes get a bit overwhelming. If we try to move him too far from his daily nap, or put him to bed late too many nights in a row, he can get a little stressed and unsettled.
Ensuring we still have plenty of one-on-one time with him, with lots of age-appropriate activities helps him to feel a sense of normality. We try to attend whatever groups he usually goes to through December, and make sure he has some down-time as well, away from too much stimulation. Try some of these winter music activities with your toddler this December: Continue reading “Winter Music With Your Toddler: December”
This will be J’s second Christmas, and there is so much excitement to be had now that he is a little older. At 15 months old, he will still have no idea what Christmas is, but he will enjoy the occasion and all of the festivities! At the top of this year’s Christmas bucket list was a trip to see Father Christmas. We didn’t know if he would be scared, as he does get a little nervous around some people now, but thought we should at least give it a go. Hatton Adventure World’s Enchanted Christmas Kingdom seemed the best place to go for his first visit, as there are so many other things to see and do there – it wouldn’t be a wasted trip, even if he hated Santa!
