To be honest my boys Christmas lists can get a little repetitive with mostly computer games and figures for their computer games featuring! I want to expand their horizons and motivate them to have time away from the screen on occasion. I thought that the gift of music is something a bit different; I like the idea of encouraging them to learn an instrument. The school have started offering instrument lessons and I am keen for my eldest to practise at home to make the most of the opportunity. Music is a wonderful form of expression and you can often learn more effectively through the medium of music.
Musicroom have a great gift finder on their website which makes it considerably easier to pick out gifts. You can tailor your search around a particular instrument and price, then aim it at kids, adults or both. You are then presented with a large selection of products meeting that particular criterion. It certainly takes the stress out of browsing through endless pages to find a suitable gift! It really does let you see the best that the Musicroom has to offer in a simple and fun way!
I have stumbled upon a wide range of perfect stocking fillers; the Spongebob Squarepants themed instruments are ideal. Great value and would be very popular with most children, I have not yet found a child who does not like Spongebob Squarepants! The 6 inch tambourine is only £6.99 and the Egg Shakers just £4.99, Spongebob’s face looks particularly comical on them, both would make lovely gifts this Christmas. Holding instruments can really help with hand eye co-ordination and these sets are just the right size for younger children to manage and of course the design makes them ultra appealing! Children will relish experimenting with the different sounds the instruments make.
Now that eldest is having drumming lessons I think I will be shopping more regularly at Musicroom! If your budget is tight you can of course make your own musical instruments as a family but I still think at these prices it would not hurt to splash out on a few proper instruments as well. After all apparently playing a musical instrument makes you brainier! So I think that can help me justify spending a few hundred on a drum kit surely! Well that's what I will be telling hubbie...
