If you’re looking to encourage your mini-musical maestro, check out some of these marvellous musical instruments for little hands.
Music plays a huge part in our little one’s lives. We sing lullabies to soothe them from the day they are born and toddlers can usually recognise, and join in with, nursery rhymes well before being able to create and verbalise their own sentences. When you add in that all the shaking, hitting and plucking of musical instruments can help to develop their motor skills, and enables tots to get creative – music offers a great opportunity to learn but more importantly, have fun!
