Encouraging children’s body movement through music.
NFP This project has been developed with the helpful advice of the Children's Museum of the Arts in NYC.
Problem There is a lack of physical activity among children caused by over consuming media such as video games, internet, and television.
Solution My approach is to encourage children’s body movement through music (sound). Combining music and physical activity can become an effective tool for children since music provides opportunities to create, perform, and communicate.
Benefits Musical Pebbles encourages children to play more actively apart from screen media by providing an interactive platform that requires motor skills.
Next Steps Children can enjoy this product at local children’s museum as an after school activity, and they can also get it from local toy store and playing at home. Advertising that makes aware of proper media consumption would help more children understand the importance of physical activities.
