As a parent of two small children, I’m always looking for new ways to stimulate their senses through art, music, or other fun activities. They love to sing along to their favorite commercial jingles and TV show theme songs, but it’s also nice to expose them to age-appropriate tunes that are also grown-up toe-tappers. (And really, how many more times can we put the Frozen soundtrack on repeat in the car? “Let It Go” is genuinely a favorite of mine, but seriously.)
Enter Alex and The Kaleidoscope, an enthusiastic kindie band that blends lyrics, rhythm, and vibes that both parents and children can enjoy. Their new album, Get On Board!, is now a staple in our minivan’s CD player, so we can finally retire Elsa…for a little while, at least. Plus, we were lucky enough to see them perform live at the Ardmore Music Theatre, at the venue’s very first children’s show.
