When it is raining and dreary outside, and you’ve run out of inspiration for keeping your kids amused, there is nothing better than a bit of escapism into the world of fantasy. All you need is some music to play and a bit of clear space. If you have some dressing up clothes, then even better! The possibilities are endless, and children will soon be swept up into an imaginary world where they could be forest fairies or monsters up mountains!
Classical Music is a wonderful source of inspiration and brilliant for developing and expressing emotional responses. Whether it is played as background music to craft activities and play, or to encourage dancing and imaginative movement, it is an invaluable resource for anyone with small children. There is classical music to suit every mood and occasion and it can calm things down, liven things up or fire up the imagination.

3. Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite – Waltz Of The Flowers.

(Winter and Spring recommended particularly for imaginative movement, but the whole piece is lovely, especially as a background for craft activities.)
