11 Circle Songs for Stretchy Band Music and Movement Activities

11 Circle Songs for Stretchy Band Music and Movement Activities

A little over a year ago I was privileged to witness Harry Becket, MT-BC faciliate a group music therapy session at a nursing home in Springfield, MO.

We had fun experimenting with the connect-a-band, bean bags, and streamers with the group. I also thoroughly enjoyed a live session of his musical talents on piano and voice.

He could sing any song they asked of him with enthusiasm and joy. He also shared a great list of eleven songs that refer to circles.

I hope they bring new inspiration to use with the stretchy band or connect-a-band.
