Impromptu Musical Moments

I love those moments when you’re in the middle of something and you suddenly feel inspired to be silly with your kid. That happened today.

We were cooking in the kitchen, and I ran out of paper towels (leaving an empty paper towel roll). Feeling inspired, I whipped it off and created an improptu “trumpet” solo. Suddenly our rather boring afternoon was filled with peals of laughter and a parade in the living room. My little guy danced along as I made up all kinds of silly tunes or adapted ones I love like “Yankee Doodle.”

These moments are the best and remind me that ordinary objects at home really do make great toys for exploration.

Spend a silly moment with your child today.
