Last week was Lion Cub Story Time! I read books with a MUSIC theme (although, it was calling for snow in our area, so a “snow” theme would have been better, but oh well…next time!)
This is actually the second time I’ve done a music theme for Lion Cub Story Time, but the first go around was years ago, so it was new for these kiddos…so easy and so fun. Basically, you can sing any song, do any dance, and it fits with your theme. This is a good time to go through your music teacher’s stash of instruments too! Here is the handout we gave to parents.
For Zin! Zin! Zin!, we actually watched a few mintues of it on BookFlix…only has much as their attention could handle. Our craft was tambourines out of paper plates and beans and our snack was fruit snack MEDLEYS (get it?!). With the music instruments, I had them laying out while kiddos came in and looked around, but we also had a little bit of a dance party in the middle of story time where they got to pick an instrument and dance. I selected Billy Jonas’ Who’s Gonna Make Our Music as our dance party tune.
