The post that first attracted me to Little Gene was her Music Time Bin. I love this idea and love her cute pictures even more. She created cards with pictures and the titles of common known songs. She placed them in a basket with some masks and manipulables for the children to hold while they sang songs. These are great visuals for children to connect with some of their favorite songs. For us, I love the fact that Jacob can learn the pictures that go with the songs and then choose what songs we sing next since he can not name the songs at this time.
Joanna provides black and white pages to print so that you are able to color, cut and laminate the cards. I did so and used my clear contact paper as a lamination. I placed them in a basket with shakers, kazoos, and some other noise makers.
She has some other printables and just great ideas! Check her blog out and make your own Music Box!
