Music is considered as an important tool in expressing hidden emotions . Such activities of letting urself loose on the dance floor creates joy happiness & a feeling of lightness . It also strengthens the bonding between a parent & a child. This can be done when you have other kids at home or even if you are alone with ur child. Dancing is total fun.

Rightly said as singing & dancing are best ways to channelise emotions .If you are not a dance person, sing your favourite songs. Kids love rhymes, so sing some rhymes to entertain them. I love music and my son loves listening to songs.
7. Cake:
a good way to develop a strong bonding by baking a cake with your child in the kitchen. Allow the child to participate in icing the cake and enjoy the special contribution. if you cannot bake one then keep it simple, bring your child’s favourite cake and allow him to cut the cake and enjoy eating it. This is a very cost-effective way of celebrating. So simple yet beautiful.
8. Perform:
If your society has an event for children’s day or you plan an event for a group of children, perform for them. Kids will love seeing their parents perform on stage. We have done this when I was teaching in school. Kids were surprised to see their kids perform on stage.
