When it is raining and dreary outside, it can be challenging to keep your kids amused indoors. But there is nothing better than a bit of escapism into the world of fantasy.
All you need is some classical 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’s just played as background music to some craft activities and play, or to encourage dancing and imaginative movement, it’s an invaluable resource for anyone with small children.
There is classical music to suit every mood and occasion. It can calm things down, liven things up or fire up the imagination.
Kids love dressing up to help get them into character, so some fairy wings or silk scarves would always go down well! And there is so much classical music to choose from, sometimes it can be difficult (not to mention time consuming) to find just the right track, so here are some suggestions which have been chosen specially to encourage and inspire.
5 Best Classical Music Tracks For Fairy Dancing
1. Saint Saens: Aquarium from Carnival of the Animals.
2. Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite – Dance Of The Sugar Plum Fairy.
3. Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite – Waltz Of The Flowers.
