The cost listed is the list price of each item, regardless of whether or not we got it on sale/discount. The activity sheets amount was calculated by cost of binder clip + lamination sheets.

I wanted to show three different kinds of ways to experience music and I have to say, I think I nailed it. Everyday life = I Got the Rhythm; kids can make music and find rhythm anywhere! At the library = Music Class Today!; kids can make music and dance at the library. Classical = Zin, Zin, Zin, a Violin!; kids can listen to music performed by others.

And of course, I wanted to allow the kids the chance to create their own music and that’s really all this kit needed. I choose both the Lakeshore Learning xylophone and the Melissa and Doug band-in-a-box. These provide lots of opportunities to play music and caregivers can return it to the library once their ears need a break!

This Bundle has gone out six times in the two months since its release.
