Let's Play Music Singable Books and More
Meet the Soelbergs
Most of you know how I started Bear Paw Creek and it has helped me achieve my hard fought goal to stay home with our children. I never set out to be a business woman but here I am! Because of that, I get to make connections with some AMAZING people, and Shelle and Dave are on that list! The original connection came because they have been using our stretchy bands, scarves, and bean bags in their program.
Here is a snippet about them: "Let’s Play Music was founded by Shelle Soelberg in 1998. While studying Music Education at Brigham Young University, Shelle thrilled at the teaching philosophies of early music educators. The ideas of Curwen, Kodaly, Orff and Dalcroze sounded so appealing and accurate and she longed to make them part of her teaching."
Check out their "About the Founders" page to learn more.
In pulling this blog post together, I found out that Shelle has a podcast you might be interested in, as well. Let's Play Music Podcast can be found on Apple, and is about the following.
We enrich lives with the power of music. Our music programs for children harness that power and go beyond just teaching music. Our podcast focuses on reaching dedicated parents and teachers who value the development of the whole child. We explore music education, early childhood education, music history and music theory to provide both insight and methods for teaching children through music.

NEW Wipeable Bean Bags
2020 sure brought many changes in the classroom and home. Music Education and group activities were completely upended. Distance learning became the new normal, which brought educators and parents scrambling to accommodate and ensure we could continue to keep music and movement in their hands. We collaborated with music educators, dance teachers, and music therapists to bring you our personal student kits.
We also created a wipeable balloon ball and our newest addition are wipeable bean bags.
These are made out of durable nylon packcloth that can be wiped off between use and also machine washed. We would recommend wiping off with sanitizing wipes between use, and machine washing once a week. They are available in a 12 pack currently, and we are thinking of offering a six pack as well.
Be sure to enter the giveaway. Drawing will take place Feb 8, 2021!
