Find your lyrics together
Sometimes it's hard to say what we're feeling. Luckily, talking isn't the only way to express feelings. Music can also be a great way to communicate. Here’s an activity to encourage communication between you and your child.
- With your kid, pick one of the instrumental tracks or beats below.
- Grab a pen and paper and challenge your kid to a fun and friendly collaboration.
- You go first. Start with a lyric about something you're feeling or going through. Then it's their turn!
- Don't worry about being off-key or off-beat - just make sure you're being honest and open about your lyrics.
