I’m linking up with Aileen over at Mrs. Miracle’s Music Room to talk about my favorite pins on Pinterest!
Be sure to follow me there for some rocking ideas!
1. Parachute Games
I love parachute games and these guys are ADORABLE!!!
2. Musical Styles
I shared this over on my Facebook page not too long ago – I just thought it was such a fun way to show styles of music!
3. Fishing Wire Ukulele Strings
I seriously thought this was a gimmick – ukulele strings made from fishing wire? NOT AT ALL! It is actually a real thing and I have now connected with several people who do it! I can’t wait to try it!
4. Science of Sound Glasses
5. Awesome Bulletin Board
I LOVE this bulletin board and my kids refer to it ALL.THE.TIME. They have a hard time with all the different terms for the various people who go into making a piece of music – especiallyconductor vs. composer!
Wrapping Things Up
My final advice? When in doubt, bake cookies! (Pillsbury makes an excellent pull apart cookie dough, I must say). A dozen cookies on someone’s desk can make them feel warm and gooey inside (pun intended). This strategy has been around since the beginning of time and is a tried and true method.
