About the Program
But I can’t sing, can I still join?
YES! The main idea behind these music activities is for you to spend time and interact with your baby. Your level of musical ability is not important. And if you’re really concerned that you “can’t sing” consider these two points. 1. Your baby doesn’t know or care if you can sing well or not. 2. Everyone can sing, some better than others, that’s all.
Can I do The Bubble Box with my baby under 6 months?
If you’d like to do with music with your baby younger than 6 months, that’s great! Baby is never too young to enjoy music. However, make sure you modify the actions in any activities involving movement, taking into account baby’s level of head control and overall physical strength. If you baby does not have good head and neck control, you can still say the rhyme while lying baby against you and moving gently. You can always come back to these activities later when baby has better head control.
Do I need any instruments/other resources to do the activities?
It would be helpful to have some basic percussion instruments for the Play Our Instruments activities in each session of The Bubble Box program.
The Musical Play activities also use props. These are generally items you may find around the house, have on hand or can easily purchase inexpensively from a supermarket or cheap shop.
You might already have some of these instruments at home OR you can make the instruments yourself from household items. Read my blog about home made instruments for more information.
Here’s the list of recommended instruments:
- A Glockenspiel/Xylophone (you could use an app on a phone or tablet for this).
- Egg Maracas (preferably two sets – one for you and one for baby)
- A drum/tambourine
- Rhythm sticks
You will find a list of recommended props for each session on the session home page. Props include simple items like scarves, bubbles and feathers.
What is in a "session"?
Sessions are structured around four main categories of activities:
1. Sing, say, do
2. Listen and Move
3. Play our instruments
4. Musical play
There are 14 activities per session. Sessions also include a standard welcome and goodbye song to promote familiarity through repetition.
