A Summer of Cultural Excursions for Young Imaginations

Imagination THRIVES in young children from 3 – 7 years old – they learn and process information through their pretend play.  Media is full of fantasy to expand their world.  But what about the wonders of the real world?   People from different cultures have many things in common, but each has their own unique aspects.   Wouldn’t it be fascinating to fill these young children’s minds with awareness of different cultures around the world through words, sounds, songs, dances and games.  Their imagination and pretend play will forever be enriched.  And it is likely they will be more open minded and accepting of people who are not like themselves… curious…  instead of afraid.

.

Our Summer 2013  Kindermusik Adventures can bring these cultures to life in the hearts and minds of these young children. .
All people communicate , but each language sounds different.  Wouldn’t a young child love to know how to say Hello, Goodbye, and to count to 3 in several languages?    Yodel from the mountaintops in Germany?  Communicate with talking drums in Africa?
.
All people wear clothes and live in some sort of shelter.  Wouldn’t a young imagination thrive with simple new ways to make  ”cultural costumes” and “build cultural forts”, from a tee-pee to a castle?
.
People from all cultures sing, play music and dance.  A young child who learns some of these musical cultures will be building a foundation for expanding their pretend play now, and for connecting with unique people for the rest of their lives.    We’ll learn songs about animals from different countries, learn simple cultural dances, and be transformed into a German OOmpah band, and even a Mariachi band for a fiesta in Mexico.   Ms. Debbie has MANY instruments from all around the world to share through hands-on experiences !

We can do it ALL…  or whatever fits in your crazy summer schedule,

right here in Lakeland, Florida !

Did I miss a culture or country that YOU would like to see, or perhaps someone would even like to share MORE about their culture (child friendly versions) with me.  I love to learn about new cultures and share it with families.
