Playing Rhythm Sticks
2 rhythm sticks per person
Choose a song that has a good beat to play rhythm sticks with your child. Give two rhythm sticks to your child and use two for yourself. You can either buy rhythm sticks or make them yourself with round wooden dowels (each stick is approximately 5 inches). Encourage your child to play the rhythm sticks in different ways to the beat of the songs. This activity will help your child listen and play to the beat of a song while teaching your child to play an instrument.
