My Songbook


My Songbook

[25 Minutes]

You don't need a professional singing voice to share music with your child, just have FUN! Make a book with your child to preserve your favorite family songs.

You'll need:

• hole-punched plain white paper • pen • plastic rings or binder • markers

What to do:

  1. As your child learns new songs, write the words (and the melody in notes if you wish) onto sheets of paper.
  2. Encourage him to make pictures to go with each song.
  3. Bind the pages together with plastic rings.
  4. Invite him to share the book with the rest of the family.

Let's Talk: Ideas to Explore Together.

  • What is your favorite song in the book?
  • Are there any songs that you want to add to the book? Let's name the songs.
  • Let's make up new words to your favorite tune.

Useful information:

While you are having fun together, this activity will help your child develop language skills and social skills.
