Description

Noodle Loaf is an interactive music loving podcast for kids created by a music-ed specialist dad to help bring learning and laughter to your down time with singing, dancing and lots of play.

Episode Date
Good Jam
12:27

Hey Noodlinos! Music activities for kids abound in this here podcast installment of the mighty Noodle Loaf show.  So grab some toast and a kid (preferably your own) be it a preschooler, a kindergartener or even a big kid because we've got some goooood jams to share with you.

Time To Move - Our first music game is of the creative movement variety.  Children are invited to move like various objects, animals and people, all to our laid back kid friendly groove.  Can you be like water?  ✪

Echo Song - Good Jelly - In this repeat after me style sing along song, listeners take part in an inner and outer search for a better jar of jelly.  As it turns out it wasn't jelly we were looking for after all.  (it's jam).  For fans of silly kids music only. ✪

Jam Along - Speaking of good jam, here is a rhythm game to get your family groove on to.  This improvisational drumming activity is a favorite of every budding Buddy Rich.  The only rule is, it's got to be funky. ✪

We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!  It's like a music lesson you can eat on the way to school.

Gather up your toddlers, kindergarteners, elementary aged children and forever young grown ups for some singing, moving and good old fashioned trivia for kids. We continue our Black History celebration on this episode with music and movement, a call and response song; one of many black history songs for kids we'll enjoy this month, and of course, giggles.

Echo song - we'll sing about Dr. Mae Jemison in ""First Black Woman in Space"", an echo song for kids focused on pitch matching ✪

Time to Move - a creative movement activity practicing flow and weight, age appropriate for all kids. ✪

Trivia - Next up is Black History trivia for children where listeners must guess whether the stated object was a Motown Group or made by a Black Inventor. Great for general knowledge, and as always, music appreciation for kids. ✪

Pedal On!
15:15

We continue celebrating Black History Month on our kids podcast by channeling the great tradition of Civil Rights songs, with a song about James Baldwin for kids and a song about the Black sports hero Major Taylor. Hooray for fun music for kids about inspiring Black figures! Both of these songs appear on our new Black History EP called "Oh Let Us Sing!" which features five children’s songs about five inspiring historical Black figures.

Playground Game - The episode begins with the classic playground sing along song for kids, Pizza Pizza Daddy-O. We do our own spin on this creative movement game for our kids podcast but you're encouraged to search online for the old school version. ✪

Echo Song - Then we help children develop pitch and singing confidence with our original echo song, one of a few of our Black History songs for kids, James Baldwin Used His Words. It's a Black History song for preschoolers and up. ✪

Clap It Back - We also get into a music activity for kids about the traditional African-American food, cornbread, during our rhythm, game segment. This game promotes rhythmic awareness and provides a recipe you can cook with your children too! You can find the skillet cornbread recipe that inspired the music game here: Better than Jiffy

Echo Song - Our final echo song, Pedal On!, is about the great Black sports hero Major Taylor who was not only a cycling champion but is also remembered as a civil rights hero. ✪

We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids!

It's a new dawn, it's a new day, it's a new EP from Noodle Loaf! In honor of MLK's birthday and Black History Month, Noodle Loaf has released an album of five Black History songs for kids. Each is an original echo song, available with and without the echo for maximum sing-along-ability. Check that out on your choice of music platform after you listen to this hot and fresh new podcast episode!

Echo Song - "Oh Let Us Sing of Dr. King" is a celebration of Dr. King's dream of equality, and is one of the five Black History songs for kids on our newest EP. Kids can practice pitch matching, and reflect on Dr. King's message of love. ✪

KaraYOUke - Nothing goes with melodic and verbal improvisation like an ABC phonics song for kids! Improvise the words to a song using words that start with the alphabet letters: ABCDE. Learn the alphabet and improvisational songwriting at the same time. ✪

Time To Move - a creative movement song, which also gives space for mindfulness with a guided meditation for kids through nature imagery ✪

Monday Soup, Tuesday Soup, Wednesday Soup, Thursday Soup, Friday Soup, Saturday Soup, Sunday...Nachos! Yes, finally a days of the week song for kids that is about soup. Because who said music activities for kids can't be about soup? Not me.

Time To Move - We begin the show with a movement game for children that promotes steady beat awareness and the dance concept of weight. It also promotes goofiness and giggles. ✪

Echo Song - When Will the Rain Stop? - This episode's repeat after me song is a social emotional learning song about acknowledging why you're sad and figuring out what your options are when feeling those feelings. There may be a metaphor in there, we're not sure. What we do know is that rain always stops eventually and that a singalong song for children is a great way to pass the time while you wait ✪

Days of the Week Song - Monday Soup - This music game for kids has more hearty ingredients in it than a chunky minestrone. Not only will your kids learn the days of the week but they will also do some pitch matching and develop their sense of rhythm while they're at it. They may also scream "NACHOS!" ✪

All of our fun music and games are good for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! It's like a music lesson you can eat on the way to school. And less messy than soup.

You don't get to clean up if you don't make a mess.  So go make a mess and then sing along with our clean up song for kids.  That's an order! PLUS we'll use our ears to name mystery sounds and use our mouths to make rhymes.  It's a full face work out for families you don't want to miss.

Name That Sound - First up, a listening activity for kids about writing. Listening about writing...is that like dancing about architecture? I dunno, but I do know that it is a great way to develop aural awareness in kids. ✪

Echo Song - Cleaning So Clean - Our repeat after me song about clean up time will you have you and your kids whistling all the way to the dust bank. That doesn't make sense. Anyhow, it will make cleaning more fun. And it will also develop a sense of pitch in children, and whimsy too. ✪

Rhyme Time - A rhyming game for kids set to a funky beat! Not only will children develop their phonological awareness without having to learn the word phonological, but they may also learn to rap. This rhyme game is a favorite of parents probably because they get to show off all the big words they know. ✪

We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! It's like a music lesson for your commute to school.

Going With The Flow
14:28

A bit of a theme going on in this one.  Who improvises?  Who does not?  What does improvise mean? What does amprovise mean?  As far as I know, it does not mean anything. Nonetheless this episode is fun and educational and fun and introduces the concept of improvisation to children.

Clap It Back - This rhythm game is two lessons in one and a whole lot of fun. Children will gain rhythmic awareness and learn the sections of the orchestra, namely woodwinds, percussion, brass and strings. Plus we rhyme "piccolos" with "cover holes." ✪

Echo Song - Improvise - Special guest appearances by podcasters Alex Goldman of Reply All, Mick Sullivan of the Past and the Curious, Pamela Rogers of Buttons and Figs and Nosaj from the rap group New Kingdom. The song teaches the definition of "Improvising" in the musical sense and in the sense of going with the flow when life throws you curveballs. It's a song about resilience and having a good attitude for kids and the grown ups who love them even when they spill all of the snacks all of the time. ✪

Story Song - My Mother is a Baby - This is a song tale about a mother who is a baby, not a metaphorical baby, but an actual baby. It's a silly song for kids that's a little bit Elvis, a little bit Shel Silverstein and a whole lotta fun. ✪

You Make The Story - You get to play this mad libs for kids in real time. I like to play this on long car rides where each person in the car takes turning filling in the blank. This You Make The Story is about cooking poorly. ✪

Like an Overjoyed Seal
12:33

To play this music activity for kids filled podcast you will need a body, a head, paper and crayons or something like crayons, like pencils.  And some time.  And a desire to have fun.  That's more or less it.  You'll see.

Dance Dance Noodleution - A fun movement song designed to get your kids up and dancing. If only music for kids was always this goofy and funky..ahem....goofunky. This creative movement activity teachers body isolation and general body awareness and is great to use a brain break in classroom. Try it, you'll see. ✪

Echo Song - I Made a Costume pt. 3 - Our 3rd edition of our song about Halloween for kids once again focuses on the art of the homemade costume. Singalong as we list some homemade costume ideas that may or may not actually make sense like a water fountain and a box of crayons. What other kids podcast provides music education and Halloween costume ideas. Not The Daily with Michael Barbaro. You'll see. ✪

Floor Banana - A very short song about floor bananas. I don't want to eat them. You'll see. ✪

Guided Doodle ft. Mozart - Arts and crafts meets music appreciation in this drawing activity for kids. Grab a pencil and paper and then listen to the instructions to create your own mystery drawing. You won't know what it is you are drawing, but that's the fun. Share your doodle on Instagram by tagging @noodleloafshow so we can see if they came out the same or not. You'll see. ✪

We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! It's like a music lesson you can have during breakfast.

Today's song combines the power of growth mindset affirmations with the joy music fundamentals! Specifically solfege.  I think you're going to like it.  You'll also enjoy our Hispanic Heritage Month game "Instrument or Food" that celebrates those aspects of Latinx traditions.  And maybe you'll even enjoy a movement game that promotes spatial relations and body awareness.  Maybe not! Only one way to find out...press play :)

Trivia - Instrument or Food - A Hispanic Heritage Month quiz for kids about Latinx music and foods. I say a word, you guess if you'd prefer to eat it or play it. ✪

Call and Response / Echo Song - That's So Mi - Who couldn't use a little music for kids that introduces the concept Sol Sol Mi solfege while having kids recite positive affirmations? It's social emotional learning (SEL) combined with music fundamentals and it's fun to sing too. ✪

Time to Move - Two Part Show - This movement activity for kids develops the dance concepts of spatial relations and body awareness through play. This can be used in classrooms with preschoolers through early elementary students. ✪

We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! It's like a music lesson for your commute to school.

Sure, I could use this space here to explain photosynthesis but wouldn't you rather learn about it via clapping? I would. And so would your child. Which is why this episode has a song explaining photosynthesis. And plenty of other educational music for kids too!

Time To Move - Loud is Big, Soft is Small - We kick things off with a creative movement song about musical dynamics. Big and small. Loud and Soft. Silly and fun! ✪

Clap It Back - Leaves - A song about photosynthesis! A rhythm game about life science! A podcast for kids that has it all! ✪

Echo Song - That Spells Friend - A repeat after me song about friendship that not only helps kids identify what a friend is but helps them spell it too. It's a social emotional learning (SEL) song that's both tasty and healthy. ✪

We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! It's like a music lesson for your ride to school.

13:03

This episode contains gratuitous goofiness and clandestine education. If you're not careful you may find yourself giggling and learning in equal measure. Proceed with caution. Fun children's song that parents will love too lie within. You've been warned.

Echo Song - Muuuuuud - We kick things off with a song about nature that encourages messy play and saying the word "mud" in a funny voice. Recommended for fans of Waldorf schooling and Waldorf salads. ✪

Story Song - Leg Bone - From the archives of legendary kids musician Old Blind Loafy Noodles comes this funny story song. It is not an authoratative song about the human body but it is a silly song for kids that might teach children about song form. ✪

Time To Move - Go Bananas - Preschoolers have long loved this action song, but now with a funky groove it is perfect for early elementary age kids too. The music game encourages kids to make up their own dances so make sure all drinks are secured. ✪

KaraYOUke - A songwriting lesson for kids wearing a karaoke robe. We provide the music and the vocab, you provide the melody and the lyrics. This music game develops melodic and verbal improvisational skills and may turn your child into the next Dolly Parton. ✪

We hope you enjoy our music and games for preschoolers, kindergarteners and early elementary age kids! Making music making friends!

Music can be used to learn things besides music.  Or so I've been told. Today we test that hypothesis to see if the kids in our midst can retain essential general trivia like the fact that Michael Bolton's birth name was Michael Bolotin.  This could be a breakthrough in kids podcast technology.

Time To Move - Be a butterfly! Be a rug! Be filled with jelly! This brain break style movement activity for kids will not only get your wiggles out, it will put them back in again too. Because you’re gonna need wiggles where we’re going. ✪

Singing Slide - This vocal warmup game for kids is brought to you by slide whistles. Echo the sound the slide whistle makes to warm up your voice before singing the next song. ✪

Echo Song - I Love Fun - This echo song AKA repeat after me song is a fine piece of children’s music. So fine. So fun. It’s about how things are made and how things that are made can facilitate fun. That explanation doesn’t make it sound fun, but it is. Trust. ✪

Clap Facts - Trivia and Clap It Back combine to create Clap Facts, a general knowledge game for children where they clap back statements that are true and freeze after statements that are false. Lava is basically melted rocks: clap it. Dinosaurs lived on Earth with humans: no claps ✪

All these children’s songs and games are great for elementary age kids and younger. Take this kids podcast on the go in your car, airplane and/or dirigible.

A little extra noodle in our loaf this go round to keep your family singing, rhyming, jamming and goofin’.

Clap it Back - We begin with a rhythm song for kids called Weird Picnic. This clapping game develops rhythmic awareness in children and has some fun with the very strange eating scenarios families have been experiencing recently. ✪

Rhyme Time - This rhyming game will grow a phonological wunderkind right in your home. It’s a children’s music activity that parents love too. ✪

Echo Song - Summer Is Hot - This kids song about summer celebrates sun with singing. Repeat after me styler songs are a great way to help kids learn musical pitch, rhythm and singing confidence. ✪

Kids Talking About Stuff - Kids have a candid discussion about skin color. Can it be it was all so simple then? ✪

Finish The Pattern - This music game develops pattern recognition and promotes the art of making music with your mouth be it for beatboxing or voice foley ✪

Jam Along - We end the show with a jam session. Break out your improvisational drumming chops and play along with this kid-friendly funky groove.

Get ready for some part singing!  Your family is about to become an acapella group.  But then you'll go solo so you can individually profess your admiration for the great Harriet Tubman.  With nothing left to prove on vocal terrain, you will decide to express yourself using only your body.  An entire music career in a 10 minute podcast.  Good luck.

These words aren't going to rhyme themselves.  That's where you come in.  Hats Pear Shoe Bum Tin.  Cat Hair Yukon Gin.  Matts Dared Lou "Jump In!" etc.  There's an echo song that is kind of about Stevie Wonder, at least peripherally.  And a mad lib style game but with more leeway.  I strongly advise a listen.

I Run On Grapes
11:52

I definitely prefer seedless grapes, yet I understand on an intellectual level that seeds are needed to grow more grapes.  The whole situation is unclear to me. What I do know is that the grapes that I eat power the bike that I ride, and that is what is important here.  The Noodle Loaf team takes a stab at singing those feelings in a trap song format on today's show.  How'd we do?  Also Popcatépetl.

Together

Drawing inspiration from the Families Belong Together movement, "Together Like A Song" uses simple language and subtle imagery to communicate the core human value of caring for one's neighbors.

"Together Like A Song" was composed by Dan Saks for his music education podcast for kids, Noodle Loaf.  The illustrations were drawn by artist and musician Tim Fite.  

Limited edition hand-bound paper booklets are available at Booklyn, as part of their Lil' Radicals Multicultural and Social Justice Publications for Kids exhibition.

I challenge thee!  This week's echo song is particularly well suited to a classroom setting because it contains silliness and balloons...and nothing motivates young musicians like silliness and balloons.  I am sharing the song and an arrangement because...

I hereby issue the following challenge:

  • Teach this to your class and share a snippet on social media using the hashtag #RedBalloonChallenge
  • Tag @noodleloafshow to make sure we see it.  I'll shout out your class on a future episode!

They say you should dance like nobody's looking at the kitchen utensils.  And that writing about architecture is like singing about worms.  And that learning about dinosaurs is called paleontology, not to be confused with Patreontology which is the study of supporting Noodle Loaf.  This may or may not all make sense after hearing today's show.

Noodle Loaf Choir - "Now That We Know"

Here is how to add your voice to our new Noodle Loaf choir song "Now That We Know."  Five listeners who share a link to the episode on FB or Twitter will be randomly chosen to receive a version of the song with only their child's voice. Must submit before the end of July 2018.

1. Have your child listen to the song with the echo already in there:

2. Use 2 devices (phones, tablets or computers) to record your child singing along to this version of the theme song:

Device 1: Your child listens to the song using headphones.
Device 2: Using "Voice Notes" or another recording app, record your child singing the echo parts of the song.

In other words:

Be sure to find someplace quiet to do the recording.  

Send your recording to noodleloafshow@gmail.com and include where you live and your child's first name (unless you don't want that on the show).

Then just sit back and wait for their voice to show up in an upcoming episode!

How To Join Our Theme Song Choir

We're trying something new here at Noodle Loaf.  Something that is unique to the medium of podcasting.  We're inviting all our kid listeners to be part of our theme song.  It's not a one time thing.  It's a gradual build.  One voice here, one voice there until we have the podcast world's biggest, greatest and most certainly, cutest choir around.  Here's how it works:

1. Have your child listen to the theme song with the echo already in there:

2. Use 2 devices (phones, tablets or computers) to record your child singing along to this version of the theme song:

Device 1: Your child listens to the song using headphones.
Device 2: Using "Voice Notes" or another recording app, record your child singing the echo parts of the song.

In other words:

Be sure to find someplace quiet to do the recording.  

Send your recording to noodleloafshow@gmail.com and include where you live and your child's first name (unless you don't want that on the show).

Then just sit back and wait for their voice to show up in an upcoming episode!
