You Will Need:
Music, real or pretend microphone (might be an old cell phone or a box that the child decorates, etc.), computer, head phones (optional), table and tools for writing
Listen to music with your child. Identify the names of the artists, types of music and the lyrics to the songs. If you have a computer available, use it to research artists. Help your child set up a radio station (table with paper and writing instruments). Use the head phones and microphone to role-play being a DJ by having your child introduce different artists and talk about them.
Extend this activity by being a radio announcer and talk about other topics of interest to your child and family.
What Your Child Can Learn:
- To appreciate different genres of music
- To identify artists and learn lyrics
- Confidence as a leader
- About the occupation of being a DJ
