I keep all of S's instruments in one basket in our playroom. I like having doubles of some so we can play the same thing together. Sometimes I will tell him to follow what I am doing and other times I will copy him. The scarves are wonderful for movement and dancing around. These are juggling scarves, but you could just cut any thin fabric to make them. You could also make your own ryhthm sticks. S's first instrument was an egg shaker. S loved his as a baby because it fit so well in his grasp.
