Music Makes the (Little) People Come Together

Today we went to a friends house for a folk singing event. There were five couples with five children under the age of 3. The women and children in the group get together for a play date once a week, so we decided to round up the hubbies as well. It was a hoot and a half. We sang such classics as "This Old Man", "Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes" and "Row, Row, Row Your Boat". I did the "Hokey Pokey" with a couple of the other women and my hubby helped our daughter do the same. Once again, no big news flashes here, but I highly recommend getting some friends together to do this. We had a piano, a couple of guitars, various kid-friendly percussion instruments and a collective sense of humor. If you can't get your friends in on the fun, please do the "Hokey Pokey" in the privacy of your own home because, hey, that may just be what it's all about.

Mostly it was the adults doing percussion while the kids looked at us like we were nuts! The "Hokey Pokey" was definitely a hoot, along with all the songs that featured animal noises!
