I WONDER WHERE YOU ARE HIDING

I WONDER WHERE YOU ARE HIDING. Julie Wylie copyright 2017

Organza is a beautiful prop to use in music to promote interactive, relationship based musical play between parent and child, to help pitch awareness as we sing up and down the major and minor scales, floating the organza, teaching children about prepositions through sensory experiences such going around,  over, under, between, inside, outside. Social skills are developed as children play follow the leader games going under the red, blue, green or the rainbow. Langue skills, concepts of colours, numbers, spatial awareness and creativity develop when children come up with their own ideas.

Babies love the beautiful peek-a-boo games with their parents. These are the babies’ first games which help to develop understanding of the world of pretend. I know you are there, but where are you? I see Mummy peek out from behind her hands. Such games promote watching, waiting, listening and anticipation and loving interaction and relationship and what a special moment when the baby sings the answering “Boo!”

Here is a beautiful family joining in our hiding game:

I wonder where you are hiding

I wonder where you are hiding

Where are you?

Where are you?

Peek a peek a peek a peek a Boo!
