    Good Jam

    Good Jam

    Hey Noodlinos! Music activities for kids abound in this here podcast installment of the mighty Noodle Loaf show.  So grab some toast and a kid (preferably your own) be it a preschooler, a kindergartener or even a big kid because we've got some goooood jams to share with you.
    Time To Move - Our first music game is of the creative movement variety.  Children are invited to move like various objects, animals and people, all to our laid back kid friendly groove.  Can you be like water?  ✪
    Echo Song - Good Jelly - In this repeat after me style sing along song, listeners take part in an inner and outer search for a better jar of jelly.  As it turns out it wasn't jelly we were looking for after all.  (it's jam).  For fans of silly kids music only. ✪
    Jam Along - Speaking of good jam, here is a rhythm game to get your family groove on to.  This improvisational drumming activity is a favorite of every budding Buddy Rich.  The only rule is, it's got to be funky. ✪
    We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson you can eat on the way to school.

    Space Dancing

    Gather up your toddlers, kindergarteners, elementary aged children and forever young grown ups for some singing, moving and good old fashioned trivia for kids. We continue our Black History celebration on this episode with music and movement, a call and response song; one of many black history songs for kids we'll enjoy this month, and of course, giggles.
    Echo song - we'll sing about Dr. Mae Jemison in ""First Black Woman in Space"", an echo song for kids focused on pitch matching ✪

    Time to Move - a creative movement activity practicing flow and weight, age appropriate for all kids. ✪

    Trivia - Next up is Black History trivia for children where listeners must guess whether the stated object was a Motown Group or made by a Black Inventor. Great for general knowledge, and as always, music appreciation for kids. ✪

    Pedal On!

    Pedal On!

    We continue celebrating Black History Month on our kids podcast by channeling the great tradition of Civil Rights songs, with a song about James Baldwin for kids and a song about the Black sports hero Major Taylor. Hooray for fun music for kids about inspiring Black figures! Both of these songs appear on our new Black History EP called "Oh Let Us Sing!" which features five children’s songs about five inspiring historical Black figures.
    Playground Game - The episode begins with the classic playground sing along song for kids, Pizza Pizza Daddy-O. We do our own spin on this creative movement game for our kids podcast but you're encouraged to search online for the old school version. ✪
    Echo Song - Then we help children develop pitch and singing confidence with our original echo song, one of a few of our Black History songs for kids, James Baldwin Used His Words. It's a Black History song for preschoolers and up. ✪
    Clap It Back - We also get into a music activity for kids about the traditional African-American food, cornbread, during our rhythm, game segment. This game promotes rhythmic awareness and provides a recipe you can cook with your children too! You can find the skillet cornbread recipe that inspired the music game here: Better than Jiffy ✪
    Echo Song - Our final echo song, Pedal On!, is about the great Black sports hero Major Taylor who was not only a cycling champion but is also remembered as a civil rights hero. ✪
    We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!

Each is an original echo song, available with and without the echo for maximum sing-along-ability. Check that out on your choice of music platform after you listen to this hot and fresh new podcast episode!
    Echo Song - "Oh Let Us Sing of Dr. King" is a celebration of Dr. King's dream of equality, and is one of the five Black History songs for kids on our newest EP. Kids can practice pitch matching, and reflect on Dr. King's message of love. ✪
    KaraYOUke - Nothing goes with melodic and verbal improvisation like an ABC phonics song for kids! Improvise the words to a song using words that start with the alphabet letters: ABCDE. Learn the alphabet and improvisational songwriting at the same time. ✪
    Time To Move - a creative movement song, which also gives space for mindfulness with a guided meditation for kids through nature imagery ✪

    Sounds Like Thunder

    Sounds Like Thunder

    Monday Soup, Tuesday Soup, Wednesday Soup, Thursday Soup, Friday Soup, Saturday Soup, Sunday...Nachos! Yes, finally a days of the week song for kids that is about soup. Because who said music activities for kids can't be about soup? Not me.
    Time To Move - We begin the show with a movement game for children that promotes steady beat awareness and the dance concept of weight. It also promotes goofiness and giggles. ✪
    Echo Song - When Will the Rain Stop? - This episode's repeat after me song is a social emotional learning song about acknowledging why you're sad and figuring out what your options are when feeling those feelings. There may be a metaphor in there, we're not sure. What we do know is that rain always stops eventually and that a singalong song for children is a great way to pass the time while you wait ✪
    Days of the Week Song - Monday Soup - This music game for kids has more hearty ingredients in it than a chunky minestrone. Not only will your kids learn the days of the week but they will also do some pitch matching and develop their sense of rhythm while they're at it. They may also scream "NACHOS!" ✪
    All of our fun music and games are good for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! It's like a music lesson you can eat on the way to school. And less messy than soup.

    You don't get to clean up if you don't make a mess.  So go make a mess and then sing along with our clean up song for kids.  That's an order! PLUS we'll use our ears to name mystery sounds and use our mouths to make rhymes.  It's a full face work out for families you don't want to miss.
    Name That Sound - First up, a listening activity for kids about writing. Listening about writing...is that like dancing about architecture? I dunno, but I do know that it is a great way to develop aural awareness in kids. ✪
    Echo Song - Cleaning So Clean - Our repeat after me song about clean up time will you have you and your kids whistling all the way to the dust bank. That doesn't make sense. Anyhow, it will make cleaning more fun. And it will also develop a sense of pitch in children, and whimsy too. ✪
    Rhyme Time - A rhyming game for kids set to a funky beat! Not only will children develop their phonological awareness without having to learn the word phonological, but they may also learn to rap. This rhyme game is a favorite of parents probably because they get to show off all the big words they know. ✪
    We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! It's like a music lesson for your commute to school.
