Funky Munky Music

From 10.00 am until 11.00 am

At Christ Church GL6 0DQ

£5 per child

Originally intended for toddlers and preschoolers, it quickly became apparent that even very young babies enjoy the sounds and activities at these informal sessions. We include a wide variety of songs, incorporating movements and rhythm. The use of props such as finger puppets, rhythm sticks, bunny ears, play parachutes and other items, increase the fun and encourage participation with songs both new and traditional. Mums/Dads/Carers are able to come and sit on the mats, or join in with all the musical activities, as they wish, or sit around the edge of the group and chat if they prefer.
