It’s time for a thank you post!

The Musical Bumps Croydon charity Christmas party was held just 3 days ago on Saturday December 23rd. Despite being VERY close to the big day, we had a sold out event and raised over £360 for our partner charity, Croydon Home-Start. In addition we collected for the South Norwood Foodbank; families who attended gave so generously to help those who might be struggling.

We sang and danced, feasted and partied for the afternoon. None of this could happen without a team of brilliant helpers. Thank you so much to David, Sarah and son J. From setting up, running the welcome desk, managing the food bank collection, laying out the spread, serving drinks and cleaning up, their help was invaluable.

Thanks to my family, Kevin and Ben. Ben managed the sales table (lots of quality instruments and puppets) and Kevin ably assisted in many ways, especially washing up!

Managing the distribution of star puppets, scrunchies and bells to 130 people during our festive singing, is another logistical challenge and so I was very lucky that 2 wonderful Musical Bumps graduates, Izzy and Joshua, volunteered their time to help. In addition, their dad Matt was responsible for setting up the speaker and microphone that meant the music could be heard and my voice was saved from constant shouting.

Thank you to all of you! The downside of being so helpful is that I’ll be booking you in (again) next year!! 😍 And a final thank you to St Mildred’s for the use of the large hall for our annual charity event.

Below are some photos of our feast and the foodbank collection both before and after delivery. Here’s to the next party in December 2024!


Happy Christmas Eve! have given some excellent advice to remember during this festive time 🎅🏻 🎄 🎁

You are the Sun 13/12/2023

For parents and carers with children 0-2 years, I can highly recommend this extraordinary show … a first opera for babies. If you are free tomorrow after classes in the morning, then go!!! It’s on in Brixton. Their previous show blew me away …. You’ll love it! 😍

You are the Sun You are the Sun is a very first opera for babies and grownups that explores the magic of nature.


Tis’ the season to get comfy, eat and drink all the good stuff and watch fabulous Christmas movies!

It’s simple. With babies we sing, there really is no better thing!

It's Time for Musical Bumps! 😀🎼🥁🎵🎶


This nursery rhyme is about the Gunpowder Plot which took place on the 5th November in 1605 when Guy Fawkes and his co-conspirators attempted and failed to blow up the Houses Of Parliament. Every year on the 5th November is Guy Fawkes Night or Bonfire Night to commemorate this!

“Remember, remember, the 5th of November,
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason
Why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, ‘twas his intent
To blow up the King and the Parliament
Three score barrels of powder below
Poor old England to overthrow
By God’s providence he was catch’d
With a dark lantern and burning match
Holler boys, holler boys, let the bells ring
Holler boys, holler boys
God save the King!”

We use lots of traditional rhymes at Musical Bumps. They are crucial for children as they promote language development by enhancing vocabulary and phonemic awareness. Additionally, they offer a rhythmic structure that aids in memory retention, making learning more enjoyable and effective!


Wishing you a spooktacular Halloween! 🎃👻🦇💀🕸️🕷️🪦🍫🍬


It’s suddenly that time of year again!
An extra hour in bed if you’re lucky - or simply life as normal if you have kids, or maybe an even earlier start in the morning… 🤪😵‍💫


🎶 Rain is falling down, splash! Rain is falling down, splash! 🎶
Wait a minute, it’s windy 🌬️ . No hang on, cloudy ☁️ . And now the temperature has dropped. Oh and the sun is back out… ☀️
All the weather in a matter of hours 🤷🏻‍♀️
Who has tested their heating yet?!


It’s hard to know what to reach for! Pumpkin spiced lattes or fruit juice? Flip flops or boots? Long sleeves or short sleeves?
It’s certainly a weather marvel for the first week in October ☀️ 🎃 🍂 and giving us plenty to sing about!


🩵 It’s International Baby Wearing Week! 🩷
Many babies travel to and from our Musical Bumps classes in a variety of slings. Who knew there were so many different ones to choose from?!
There are tons of benefits for both parent and baby including:

🩷babies feel happy and settled being close to you
🩵it’s incredibly practical
🩷supports parent and child bonding
🩵can help regulate a newborn heart rate and temperature

along with many others.

It’s that day again ….. we will be singing this song at classes this morning.


⛅️ 🌧️ ☔️ 🎶 You put your flip flops in. Flip flops out. In. Out. In. Out. What’s this weather all about?!
Now the question is: who has been brave enough to put the washing out on the line? 💨 ☀️ ⚡️🌩️🌦️


Musicianship after-school club is held in my house where sometimes we get interrupted by a friendly, furry visitor. 🥰🐈🎵🎹

🔵 Who has managed to spot the blue supermoon? 🔵

A blue supermoon occurs when there are two full moons in a calendar month, and it coincides with the moon's closest approach to Earth. This makes the moon appear larger and brighter than usual!

Can you think of any songs that contain the word moon?
