Singing and playing the ukulele

Do you recognise this tune?

It’s when the saints go marching in as a band song (approx 40 seconds into video clip).  Listen to it and download it here so you can use it at home with your little one. 

It’s a lovely little tune to sing along to. This toddler seems to enjoy singing along as I sing for him (approx 3 minutes into video clip). He has a go at singing the word ‘ukulele’ which I think is marvellous.

Let’s not underestimate how very hard it is to share when you are two years old.  We intentionally did not force the boy playing the blue ukulele to give it to his friend, as sometimes this is just too hard to manage.  These terrific toddlers do really well with sharing these two instruments together.

This video clip was taken as part of The Terrific Twos at Riverside, which is an early years music making project happening right now in North Tyneside.
