Music education provided in the pre-school period serves many purposes such as distinguishing sounds, using their voice correctly, expressing themselves, let children get familiar with different musical cultures, gaining a sense of music and rhythm, and supporting the creativity of children. Developing all these skills is only possible by making music enjoyable and productive and offering various music activities to children. In this study, it is aimed to design creative activities in order to enhance the musical skills of pre-school children and promote their musical acquisitions in different ways. Accordingly, different activities were prepared for pre-school music education in line with the general objectives of pre-school education set by MEB (Ministry of National Education). Opinions of the pre-school teachers were received on issues such as the implementation of musical activities prepared within the scope of this study in the classroom, the competencies of pre-school teachers related to the music lesson, and the contribution of these activities to pre-school children and teachers. In line with the opinions received, it was concluded that pre-school teachers find themselves sufficient in the field of music, but they encounter various problems while implementing musical activities, and that the activities prepared will benefit pre-school teachers and children.
