This activity will spark creativity and is excellent for self-expression and learning cause-and-effect (If I hit the pot it will make a noise).
But be warned: It WILL get noisy! So if you are living in an apartment make sure to give your downstairs neighbour a heads up!
My two little’s had a blast with this activity, and it kept them entertained for a solid 30 minutes, which is a win for mommy!
I waited until the littles were taking a nap before setting up (I knew I would struggle with the set-up if they were around because they would be too excited!)
I tried to use as many different pots and pans as I could find, I knew each one would make a different sound. I also grabbed some utensils for the littles to use as drum sticks.
I placed the pots & pans in a circle, I was going for the “drumming circle” concept.
Once they woke up and discovered the pots & pans drum circle, they knew just what to do!
It was a very noisy 30 minutes, but it was fun!!
