I don’t know about you, but my favorite cassettes and CDs as a kid were the movie soundtracks. They were the ones that best “put me in the mood” for whatever it was I needed to get accomplished…or however I wanted to feel.

Rather than having Pandora or Slacker pick out your kids’ tunes this week, have them make up their own playlists for:

  • waking up
  • cleaning up
  • playing
  • studying
  • winding down
  • going to bed
  • etc…
Then, use their preferred music player to play their personal soundtrack to get in the mood for whatever it is you need them to do.
Extra credit: see if just turning their personal soundtrack on gets your kids doing what you need them to do!
Did your child enjoy this activity?

Maybe it’s time to get them an MP3 player of their own! The SweetPea MP3 player has been designed to withstand the rough and tumble nature of kids’ play.
