Two Year Olds And a Guitar

Engaged kids

I have spent my mornings this week with 18 two years olds.  We had a blast!  I wrote earlier this week about our fun pretzel experiment.

Each morning while the kids are dropped off, there inevitably are about three kids that cry and are very upset about being "abandoned" by their Mommies. What has worked extremely well is pulling out my guitar and strumming a few tunes.  Almost instantaneously the room quiets and the crying quickly ends.

Lesson: Kids love music.  If you play an instrument, use it a lot with your kids (at home and at school).
