From our friends at Noodle Loaf, the hit music education podcast for kids, enjoy this ode to the Video Playdate. It’s in the form of an Echo Song. Host and creator Dan Saks explains, “All you have to do is sing what I sing after I sing it!”
Video playdates are front and center for kids (and adults) who have computers and a good internet connection. Though not ideal, these online get-togethers with friends and family are a sweet way to see each other when you can’t spend time together in person… “and for that,” Saks writes, “we salute you, Video Playdate!”
Bring your favorite funny faces, hats, dance moves, story and poem ideas, drawings, and show-and-tell items to your next Zoom, FaceTime, or Skype call with friends and family.
And be sure to tell them about the Noodle Loaf music podcast for kids ages 3-9 years old. We’re supporters of their work on Patreon. Here’s their Video Playdate episode:
And here’s another recent episode that includes a rhythm game about washing hands, a ROYGBIV Echo Song, and an interactive introduction to music at Carnival in Trinidad: I Feelin’ It.
