Musical Science Pool {Music Activities for Kids}

As a piano teacher, I love to share my passion for music with my kids and it is already evident that my boys love anything music related.  We have done our fair share of music activities before, so when our copy of 101 Kids Activities arrived, I was delighted to see a musical science pool activity.  I knew it was the perfect fit for us the minute I spotted it in the book.

So dressed in their swimwear, the boys and I headed outside with a variety of banging materials.  We used:

  • Metal whisk
  • Wooden spoons of different sizes
  • Muffin tins
  • Tin cans
  • Metal cake pan
  • Metal bowls, two different sizes
  • Green metal flower pot
  • Kiddie pool

We filled our pool with just enough water to allow for scooping water.  J also insisted on not filling the pool too much.  The boys enjoy scooping and pouring water so that's what they did first.  Lots and lots of scooping and pouring.

K then took a break from pouring water to wear the cake pan on his head like a hat.  Good times...


Then it was time to make some music!  It was very tentative banging at first, but then K got right into it.

J was more interested in playing with the water, but both boys had a blast!  And if that's not enough, J keeps flipping through the 101 Kids Activities book.  He has looked at it every single day since it arrived in the mail.  There are so many fun ideas to try in this book, making it a great resource for us, especially on those days where I can't figure out what to do with the boys.  Yes, I have those days.  I have admitted it before.  It's also going to be a handy book for my husband (or grandparents when they babysit!).  He and the boys can simply flip through the book and pick something to try.  One activity down, one hundred to go!
