The Nutcracker Music Game and Giveaway!!
I was especially amazed with how beautiful the music was, believe it or not, when I was growing up and had music class, we had classical music courses and my favorite composer of all time was none other then, Tchaikovsky. I don't know what it was about his music, but it stuck with me from grade school the whole way into being a mom. So, when I read about The Nutcracker Music Game, I was immediately drawn in just from that!
Kids love games, parents love things that help our children learn, so you put the 2 together and Voila! You have everything wrapped into one. Add the beautiful music, and your children not only learn to appreciate such music, but they learn about Tchaikovsky too! Our little ones have been going nutty over this since day 1 and it is really hard to keep Deegan away from the computer.
This is a brilliant game, created for children, all children, to not only find their own appreciation of music, but also to help with problem solving skills, but also to sharpen their listening skills, ( yes, I think this may also help with listening to rules too;) , as well as help them learn basic concepts of music.
Music has always been a very, very important learning tool, and ever since I read one day, a LONG time ago, lol, that music could be heard in the womb, (our 1st daughter was born in 1992), we made sure music was an everyday part of life. Which wasn't hard, since we love all kinds of music and appreciate all music, and our oldest started playing the violin at 5 and went onto play guitar for several years. She now does the same with her little princess, and Lillian, my granddaughter, is only 5 months old and already has her favorite music and songs.
Onto the game part of The Nutcracker Music Game. The object is to earn 9 golden keys, through a series of games and activities that teach students about differences between sounds, exercises their memory skills, and increases their music vocabulary. (PS Aaron, he is 9 and loves video games, and Genevive is 5 and loves fun things and games and earning, so this was a win win win, with all 3 kids here at our house!)
The Nutcracker Music Game has won, The Parents Choice Gold Award, NAPPA Gold Award, The Parenting Seal of Approval, and many others. Yes, it has also earned our Busymommylist seal of approval too!
