Song box

Here is our fun song box. It is just a box full of cards with children's songs written on them. They have a picture on one side (so Aubrey knows what song) and the title on the other side. When we have time Aubrey will pick one out and we will sing it. It is great because I often forget what songs she knows so it adds some variety. Also she thinks it is fun to pull out a card. I found the idea on The Tip Junkie blog (one of my favorites.) She has several children's songs ready to be printed out and also a label for your box. Here is the link if you are interested.

She uses an empty baby wipes container but all of ours are full so we used this leftover Christmas tin.
I decorated the outside with paint, ribbon, and a flower. I also made my own label instead of using the one provided.
Inside are the songs. I don't remember how many she has ready but I added another 15 such as baby bumble bee, wheels on the bus, and monkey's in a tree. I just typed up the song and used free clip art from the computer to make additional cards. We will continue adding more as we go.

I like how it turned out and it makes singing a little more fun. (I also want to make a list of all the songs to keep in the car for long trips)


  1. This is a really cute idea! I need to do this for my kids. They Love singing songs
