About this event

In-Person at USO Great Lakes with Virtual Program option via Zoom!

USO Diaper Division features special guest musical artists and entertainers in an informal, fun setting that stimulates the mind and body of the littlest member of the military family and creates bonding opportunities between parents and their young children.

For this session, we welcome Julie H. from Old Town School of Folk Music: Wiggleworms!

Silly, musical, playful, and wonderful, Wiggleworms is a hands-on exploration of music. Engaged and curious, children sing, dance, learn finger plays, tell story songs, and explore rhythm instruments for little hands! Grownups and kids discover American and world folk songs and delight in rock, pop, and fun original music. In Wiggleworms, children begin to acquire the language of music during an important and magical time for growth. There is no right or wrong way for kids to join in. In Wiggleworms, we are all allowed to be a little silly, creative, and expressive.
