ArtSprouts Early Years Arts Resource Book

Story, Music and Art and Craft activities for 2 – 6 year olds

The ArtSprouts resource book has been two years in the making and includes creative music and arts activities interlinked with a story featuring the Eddystone lighthouse, a mermaid and the Lord Mayor! The resource is a result of repeated requests from people working with young children who felt unsure about how to use music and the arts with toddlers and children under 6.

Artsprouts is a 58 page, full colour, illustrated ring bound book with card covers, printed on substantial ‘wipe clean’ paper. Each of its 6 chapters begins with a section of the ‘Simon and the Lighthouse’ story followed by 5 Tiny Tunes music exercises (including warm up and wind down exercises), and a Crafty Creations art activity related to the chapter. The book also includes tips on making instruments, linking the curriculum and medium-term planning. Each copy includes a song CD (clipped into the back cover) to support one song-based activity in each chapter.

Artsprouts is available from Amazon and other on-line booksellers or may be ordered directly from Plymouth Music Zone on 01752 213690 and at
