Who doesn’t love a good concert? There’s just something about live music thrumming in your chest until it reverberates through the rest of you. But sometimes, when the kids are very little or threenagers, the music has to come to you. So, we’re putting the music in their hands for our last Kiddie Pool Digest to round out the summer. You might have a musical prodigy on your hands. You never know until you try (the thing all parents say before doing something really great or really terrible).

kiddie pool summer digest for kids, deep dive

Jingle Bell Sweats

TAKE A DEEP DIVE With this Activity

[su_spacer size=”60″][/su_spacer]
As we near the end of summer and all the kid craft intentions have come and gone, for better or worse, I bring you the easiest craft of all. It also serves as a handy kid-detector if yours ever wander out of sight (or stop talking for one second, which mine never do).

Supplies
  • Bells of assorted sizes
  • Sweat bands for head, wrists, ankles which you can purchase from any sporting goods store
  • Hot glue

[su_spacer size=”40″][/su_spacer]
[su_row][su_column size=”1/4″][/su_column] [su_column size=”3/4″]
Let the kids pick out their favorite sweat bands, because they will have favorites and for no obvious reason.

[su_row][su_column size=”1/4″] [/su_column][su_column size=”3/4″]
Let them assemble their piles of bells and decide how many they want for each band.
[/su_column] [/su_row]
[su_row][su_column size=”1/4″][/su_column] [su_column size=”3/4″]
Hot glue those bells on in any pattern you like, keeping the kids well away until the glue has fully set.
[/su_column] [/su_row]
[su_row][su_column size=”1/4″][/su_column] [su_column size=”3/4″]
Let them don their new jangles, crank up the tunes from your favorite summer playlist (see below), and dance themselves into a solid naptime (here’s hoping).

kiddie pool summer digest for kids, stars

Lyra

LOOK UP THE STARS

Let’s add a harp to our concert this week with the Lyra constellation. You can find this one by looking for its largest star, Vega, which is brightest in mid-summer. As the story goes, the god Apollo gave Orpheus a harp which played the most beautiful music in the world. When he died, Apollo placed the harp in the sky for all too see. Not too shabby for a mere mortal.
