Boogie Mites resources available from I CAN
Do you want to become more confident using music and songs to help develop your children’s communication skills? If so, check out new resources available on I CAN’s shop.
Through their ‘Active Music Making’ approach, early years practitioners Boogie Mites can help you with tips and ideas for helping children to develop vital communication skills. The Boogie Mites packs offer activities based on original recordings of some of your favourite songs, along with new Boogie Mites songs written specifically to inspire and support development of children in early years.
In the Boogie Mites ‘Parent pack’ you’ll get a CD of 20+ songs to sing along to, with children in the car, share music making activities at home, or indeed anywhere! You’ll also get an Activity Booklet packed with tips and ideas to help your child’s rhythmic awareness, language and listening skills. These are key skills that can help young children later on with reading. There are also ideas for craft activities and lots of things to keep you busy at home.
There are options for different age ranges: ‘Boogie Mites Minis’ for children between 1 and 3 years old and ‘Boogie Mites School Ready’ for children aged 3- 5 years old. The focus for both CD packs is the same: that music and singing are fun for the whole family, while helping develop the skills needed for communication and reading!

“We love having the CD at home, we have made all the props and instruments. Orianna has enjoyed learning the songs and her vocabulary has increased. Her music rhythm and listening skills are better because of using the drums and sticks activities. We have enjoyed taking part as a family and seeing our daughter enjoying music making at such a young age.” Gueilyn & Colin, parents from Hampshire.
