Props Where Props Are Due…Outdoors This Summer!

As the weather and the excitement of summer begin to heat up, why not take your music activities outside with our great selection of movement props! Plan some favorite songs to sing, or take an outdoor CD player with you to add more fun to the event.

Parachutes are perennial favorites for circle games, with three sizes to fit any group. Up , down, around, and wavy are all fun techniques! Try putting a beach ball (or 2 or 3!) in the middle of the parachute, turn a favorite piece on the CD player, and see if you can keep the beach ball on the parachute while moving to the music! Not only will the activity inspire lots of giggles, it’s a great way to foster teamwork!

Our scarves and streamers bring color recognition, movement exploration, creative dance, and more to an even greater level when used outdoors as the wind, sunshine, and colors of nature all have an impact on how everything looks and moves! Dance and sing, move and create—all perfect ways to make summer musical memories!
