The Village of Rochester Hills will also be hosting “Make Music Mondays” at the Village for children 0-6 every Monday at 10:30a. Start off the day with a brisk walk led by Crittenton, providing helpful tips on parenting and answering questions you might have. Kids and parents come together each week with a theme, so plan to let your kids (and you too) wear their dress-up clothes and get into character for the event! The Village of Rochester Hills will have a story time incorporating the theme and then go into the music portion of the day. Children will sing, dance, learn about beats and rhythm, all while being active in the fresh air. And then to end the day, the YMCA will be onsite with a special art project that wraps up the weekly theme.
