Feel the Rhythm (Literally) With Painting-to-Music

Attach a large sheet of paper to an easel or on a table where she can reach the whole thing. Set out finger-paints, and draw a line down the center of the paper. Put on slow music, such as classical, and ask your child to paint what she hears and feels. On the other side of the paper, have her paint to faster music. Then compare!
