My kids certainly did and for them it started in the kitchen. I was a stay at home mom for as long as they can remember and with four little ones under foot I had to be constructive with how I’d keep them occupied.
When I’d cook, I pull out pots, pans, plastic bowls and wooden spoons and let them have at it. I’d be preparing a meal or washing dishes while they beat on objects to their hearts content.
They still enjoy making music and signing together. I often listen to them harmonizing while doing chores and get a kick out of it.
Instead of playing video games this afternoon I encouraged them to put on a concert. They pulled out their instruments and some Pringles® cans to use as drums.
I told them about a video I watched about Pringles® Percussion Prodigies, Ulysses and Spanky, battling it out using instruments made from Pringles® cans.
These two aren’t the only ones doing extraordinary things musically, there are a group of musicians of varying styles and backgrounds – called the Percussion Prodigies – who have incorporated repurposed Pringles® cans into their musical expression.
It was really fun watching the artist, but not as fun as watching my own children come up with beats and songs at our mini concert.
My kids have picked up the phrase “______ more summers until I go off to college”. The phrase makes me happy and sad because I know kids have to grow up, but it feels like a countdown. The reindeer has inspired me to be more intentional about making the most of the summer’s we have left.
