Open Wide the Circle! Musical Games for Early Learning Fun

Musical games can provide so many rich benefits to children’s social and cognitive development!

During this engaging workshop, educators will participate in a variety of musical games, including parallel play games, circle and line games. There will be plenty of fingerplays, too!
