The Gift of Music – Perfect for Any Baby Shower

Many people have trouble finding that perfect baby shower gift. One idea which is personal, yet every baby is guaranteed to love is the gift of music. Not only will music be enjoyable to both the mother and baby, but it also has a practical value that many people overlook.

The benefits of listening to music has on children

Music will offer the following benefits to the baby, both when it’s first born and latter on in life:

  • Language skills: Music has been known to help develop both language and vocabulary skills in children.
  • Education: By listening to music children will find it easier to memorize facts, learn math and phonics.
  • Home life: Different music will stir up different emotions. This can be used to create a positive and nurturing environment around the house.

Studies have shown that early exposure to music can devolve a lifelong appreciation that can extend these benefits into adulthood.

The benefits for the rest of the family

Music also allows for quality family time. Not only is it an excellent alternative to television, but you can still have it play in the background while you’re doing other activities. The following are just a few of the family activities that can be enhanced through music:

  • Reading
  • Games
  • Folding laundry
  • Cleaning
  • Baking
  • Crafts

Even if some of these actives don’t seem like too much fun, music will always make it a more pleasant experience. It’s not uncommon for family members to start singing along when their favorite song is played. While television can sometimes be a distraction, music can enhance the time you spend around the house with your family.
