Love is in the air! Below are some fun ways to incorporate my favorite love songs into your music therapy practice or a fun activity at home with YOUR loved one.
Put on some Nat King Cole and practice motor and academic skills by spelling L-O-V-E with your whole body. This works well for all ages for people with limited mobility or as a sensory break both in groups and individuals.
The Temptations’ hit My Girl is the perfect song for some piggyback songwriting. Instead of singing “my girl, my girl, my girl” fill in the blanks with things you love. This helps with communication, cognitive, and creative skills.
I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it’s cold outside,
I’ve got the month of May
I guess you’d say
What can make me feel this way?
I hope these ideas have helped and you use them or make them your own to have a very musical Valentine’s Day!
