This post, The Sound of Music, is sponsored by The Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization. All design ideas, and activity creations are my own. Thank you for supporting the brands that keep the kid’s activities and crafts coming.
I distinctly remember the first time I saw The Sound of Music at my grandmother’s house. I was the same age as the younger von Trapp children, and it was the first musical I had ever seen. This timeless classic is also the reason I joined choir and band in school.
Now as a mother with a 4.5 year old, my daughter LOVES The Sound of Music. When I hear her singing “Do-Re-Mi” around the house, it brings things full circle for me. Talk about joy! This is why I’m super excited to share these family activities I created with your family!
