Collect a number of noise-making items from the kitchen and place them on the floor.
Seat your baby in the middle of the kitchen instruments and let him explore their properties.
Teach your baby how to make a variety of sounds—pound, tap, beat, shake, rattle, even roll.
After your baby has some fun with the instruments, turn on some music and teach him how to keep rhythm.
Noise-making items from the kitchen: aluminum or tin pie pans, pots and pans, plastic bowls, wooden spoons, basting brushes, whisk, empty oatmeal or cereal boxes, empty milk cartons, spoons, plastic cups, and jars of seeds or beans
Be sure all kitchen items are safe for playing—no sharp edges or corners.
