Ukulele is my favorite starter instrument for kids ages 4 and up. The skills learned on a ukulele can directly transfer to guitar, violin, viola, cello, and other stringed instruments. OR, your child can just be a UKULELE player, because yes, the ukulele is a REAL instrument. (Take that, recorder!)
As a mom, I’m always trying to find holiday gifts that are truly useful and have some substance.
I look for gifts that foster creativity, imagination, development, confidence, problem solving, motor skills, and more. On top of all of that, they have to be super fun and engaging. Needless to say, I have pretty impossible standards!
Ahhh... holiday music. I'm a sucker for the classics. A remake rarely beats out the original recording. (Snoop Dogg Blue Christmas, anyone? Oy vey.)
