Powerpoints for introductory songs

Ok, so I have been racking my brains for useful piano and solfege related activities to try with my DD aged 2yr 9 months, who is not quite ready for the piano and computer element of the programme.

I came up with the idea of creating a powerpoint presentation to go with the introductory songs - to help learn the order of notes etc - hopefully this will make the transition to actually playing the piano easier.

I have tried to create a presentation with fairly accurate tempo, so for HCB I needed to create 3 different Do's (1 second, 2 seconds and 4 seconds). It was a bit of a stretch to create the 4s clip - so apologies this sounds slightly odd.

Very happy to hear any ideas or suggestions for improvements!

Here is Hot Cross Buns:

Thank you very much, Lee!
Awesome idea!

Would you please check music file for Do, it seems like there is echo going on when it's played, even when no repetition necessary. Thanks again!

Thanks Nadia!
Which Do? (maybe which slide number)?
To make the timing accurate for the song, I had to artifically lengthen one of the Dos to make it a four count because the timing of this piece is:
Mi (2 count)
Re (2 count)
Do (4 count)
Repeated
And then:
Do (1 count)
Do (1 count)
Do (2 counts)
etc

This means that one of the Dos (the very long one) does sound odd as all I could think to do was to repeat part of the note to make it longer. I'm not sure what else to do!
Would it be better just to have a 2 count Do note and then leave a space for a few seconds instead?
Or was it another part of the song that sounded echoing?

OK maybe was being a bit too pedantic! Have amended and used a slightly longer Do note but it is not a 4 count, however it definitely does not sound so strange.
Better?

It is definitely better!
I would say close to perfect! I understand that you wanted to do exact the timing, but the timing thing can be practiced later on by using piano and SM software!
