Abstract

The growth of early childhood is very important in determining their future development. The golden age phase of the child's growth is at the age of 0 - 5 years. At this golden age, parents who become the closest 'friends' of children have a very important role. Since they are still in the inside of their mother's womb, a child already introduced to music. The first music they heard was their mother's heartbeat, which is a rhythm with a constant tempo that follows the emotions that created by their mother's body. Music as a form of creative activity that can help to develop children's intelligence and emotional levels can also be collaborated into a craft art activity that can be created in children's daily activities. In this phase, it is better for children to get positive information from their immediate environment, for example activities related to children's creativity. Creative things can be done in the form of artistic activities such as music (singing, playing musical instruments) and art & craft (drawing, coloring, making something). From the environment and daily life of these children, they can explore many things by using objects in their surroundings. Through this method we will be able to produce more creative and critical children. Improving the intelligence of early childhood should not be difficult to do because by nature all facilities are available in the environment where the child is growing.
