Groove while you build with LEGO DUPLO Jams cd (giveaway)

I’m sad to say that this is the last month of as a LEGO DUPLO Play Agent (well, officially at least – with all of the love that my family has for LEGO and LEGO DUPLO we’ll always be recommending it as a great toy). Our LEGO DUPLO sets are in constant rotation and the change in the girls’ level of play over the past seven months has really struck me; Ashlyn in particular has gone from building very basic towers and asking her Daddy to build her ‘cool’ stuff to making her own creations and showing them off to her Daddy oh so proudly when he comes home from work!

{please excuse the crazy hair, it was a swimming lesson day today}

I don’t have a great voice, but I make it a point to sing with my girls every day. I sang while rocking them as babies, and I still sing to Rowan before her nap and bedtime. In fact, one of my favourite Mommy moments was when the girls started singing along to their bedtime songs! I frequently joke that my house is like a real-life version of Glee: non-stop singing and dancing and drama. According to the play experts at DUPLO:

“A little background music can help children sing along, build and play while they learn simple things like colors, stacking, letters and role play. A 2011 study of parents with children age 1?5 Years reveals that among children that listen to music during playtime: 55% of children are happier when music is coupled with play; 50% are more excited to play when they hear music and 43% act sillier when music is coupled with play.” 


As you can see in my video above, the girls love any excuse to dance – though building a DUPLO creation stays the priority! The LEGO DUPLO Jams cd has 9 songs that are great to listen to while building with the DUPLO blocks as they offer up some fun suggestions on what to create next (such as a caterpillar, barnyard animals, a race car and much more) but it’s also a fun set to listen to all on its own. In the car, waiting in line, while we play – any time is a good time for a song in our family!

Disclosure: I am a LEGO DUPLO Play Agent and I receive special perks as part of my affiliation with this group. The opinions on this blog are always my own.

    My son doesn’t have a favourite song. He just makes up his own songs all the time.
