We’d like to share a tip–not really from us, but from the families we see getting the most out of PLAY: When your child is ready, pair your PLAY music class with an art activity.
You can do this by simply taking advantage of your member discount on drop-in art (toddlers & up), either on the day of your music class, additional days, or both.
We also see many families with kids two years and up scheduling a PLAY music class and a Messy Mixed Media class, back-to-back on the same day. (These classes can, of course, be scheduled on separate days, too.) When kids participate in two session activities on one day, they end up spending a weekly half-day at PLAY, dancing, singing, painting, snacking, and playing; they start feeling really at home in our space; and they have more opportunities for socialization with the same group of kids (and we think the grown-ups enjoy the socializing too). Besides being a fun, weekly play date with their grown-ups and friends, this experience can help prepare kids for preschool or be a looked-forward-to supplement to their preschool routines.
Here are a few examples of Music & Art combo days for the upcoming spring session at PLAY:
