Play Date Idea: Dance Party!

Your KneeBouncer may love our Sounds Fun game, but why not take the fun offline with your very own dance party? Invite a few playmates over for some fun, grab some instruments and you’ve got the makings of a playful afternoon.

Why throw a mini-dance party? Getting your kiddo to move and groove helps build gross motor skills AND hand-eye coordination– which is critical throughout the baby-toddler-preschool ages. Dancing and music making also helps foster creativity and imagination {who wouldn’t want that?}. All you need to do is play some tunes and let your preschooler take the lead. Some of our favorite get-up-and-dance tunes include:

No instruments lying around the house? No problem! Grab some pots, pans or an empty coffee can and you’ve got yourself a drum. Or try this fun toilet paper roll kazoo craft from Preschool Crafts for Kids!
