FREE Printable Music Notes Craft to Remember the ‘Because’ Moments
Because I said so!
Because I’m the mom!
Because it’s not time yet!
Because you’ll understand when you’re older!
Because is a word that gets a bad rap in the parenting world. The final word, ‘because’ is usually how I end a draining conversation with my kids. Not begin a conversation. So when the “Because” book by best-selling author Mo Willems came into our laps – imagine how our conversation changed. Because is a powerful and beautiful word – and one that can inspire our kids to be anything they dream to be. Today, I’m trying to remember those GOOD ‘because’ moments with my daughter with this inspiring book and a FREE printable music notes craft idea.
Let’s change those ‘because’ conversations into better ones.
“Because” by Mo Willems
Because sometimes it’s the smallest moments that have the biggest impact. Celebrating all of those little ‘because’ moments, that’s why this new book from Disney Book Group is so powerful. Hope, inspiration, confidence building – “Because” inspires kids to dream bigger with just a little word, because.
Just released on March 5, 2019, this book brings together music, history, discovery, art, hard work, and persistence I love watching #1 New York Times best-selling author and illustrator Mo Willems deliver yet another captivating kids book that allows families to look at the word ‘because’ in a positive way as one little girl’s life is forever changed by one seemingly small moment. And the illustrations from Amber Ren? Spot on! Be sure to look for Amber Ren and Mo Willems drawn into the story. We had fun searching for them in the “Because” book.
It’s a book we didn’t realize that we needed. But it’s now a book that our home library can’t be without. Because you never know where this inspiring story may take your child next.
Remembering the Kindergarten ‘Because’ Moments
Kindergarten is such a pivotal stepping stone in my daughter’s life. The foundation to all of her school years, this is the opportunity to fall in love with learning. And after reading “Because” together, I realized just how much those little kindergarten moments have such a BIG impact on her life. From memorizing a ton of sight words, to writing whole paragraphs on her own (say what?), to addition, subtraction and geometry, her little sponge mind has been soaking in so much knowledge at the young age of 6. And I’ve been taking advantage of how those little learning moments have really impacted her world. In just a few short months, here’s where ‘because’ has taken her:
- Because she was excited to go to kindergarten, she wanted to learn.
- Because she wanted to learn, she received 150 words to memorize.
- Because she memorized 150 words, she can now read books by herself.
- Because she can read, she can now write full paragraphs.
- Because she has confidence in her writing, she has become more creative in her stories.
- Because she’s so creative in her storytelling, she now draws beautiful pictures to match.
- Because she loves to draw, art is now her favorite subject in school.
- Because she loves art…who knows what she will accomplish next?
FREE Printable Music Notes Craft
Because we loved the book “Because” by Mo Willems, we had to make a creative craft to go with! To help cultivate my daughter’s love for art and music, we made this FREE Printable Music Notes Craft. Perfect for drawing, finger paint (her favorite art medium!), and beyond, we let her go nuts with this colorful music notes kids craft.
Her beautiful little fingerprints make the perfect base to a musical symphony all her own! And it’s artwork that we will both treasure for years to come.
