Music Crafts and Activities for Kids

Crafting with Preschoolers is a lot of fun... especially when the crafts centre around a fun theme. I love the idea of spending an afternoon making music crafts with little ones. So, today I am sharing three of my favourite music crafts to make with Preschoolers.

I love this xylophone craft, and it is a super-easy paper craft. Using different colours and sizes of paper, kids can easily use glue and scissors to make this fun craft. Just add some pom poms to a couple of craft sticks, and kids will love "pretending" to play this colourful musical instrument.

Jingle bells are another simple crafting option. Kids can practice their fine motor skills by stringing bells onto an pipe cleaner and then turning it into a "jingle bracelet".

And who doesn't love a good paper towel roll craft? Creating a kazoo from a paper towel roll couldn't be easier. Colour a paper towel roll, use a hole punch to make a hole near the top, attach a piece of wax paper to the top, and secure it with an elastic. The kids can make a fun kazoo sound by humming into it. It takes some practice, but it is a lot of fun!

You can also make rain stick from a paper towel role by twisting up a piece of tin foil, placing the tin foil inside the roll, and sealing both ends with wax paper and elastics.

Do you like crafting with preschoolers? Music crafts are fantastic, and you can always end the day with a good dance party... and who doesn't love a good dance party?
