Get those weenie ones bopping!
You might think that babies are too young to benefit from musical experiences while they are still babes in arms, but Karen Davidson of Weeny Boppers disagrees.
“Quite the contrary,” Karen says. “The latest research shows that early exposure to music can have a remarkable impact on your child’s development.
“Even in the womb babies hear the pulse of their mother’s heartbeat and feel the rhythm of her movements. Maybe this is why children seem so predisposed to music even from birth.”
Karen runs weekly classes for under-fives and unique, action-packed children's parties for first to sixth birthdays.
Each session offers an exciting mix of interactive songs, instruments, dance, rhymes and games.
Children will enjoy banging percussion instruments, playing with mirrors, puppets, bubbles and other play equipment.
Karen said: “We like to stretch, sway, stomp and swoosh through each session! We use some well-known pop/rock songs, children’s theme tunes, action songs, classical and world music.
Scientific studies have shown that music stimulates development in those parts of the brain that control reasoning, language, intellect, verbal abilities, balance and co-ordination. Music can also help emotional development, social skills, creativity and memory.
A baby is never too young to be rocked along to a catchy melody in their parent’s arms; sung a lullaby; spoken to rhythmically or bounced up and down to a rhyme.
For a Weeny Boppers party, you choose the venue and there’s no limit to the number of guests. The games have no winners or losers and no-one is ever ‘out’ – it’s all about the fun of joining in.
So get those little ones singing, dancing, rocking and jingling!
