Game idea: Colored song sally
Age: From 6 years
Players: 1 child or more
What do you need?
The glockenspiel set or the 16-piece rhythm set with glockenspiel and song book
Excerpt from the song book
How is it played?
The child chooses a song from the song book included with the set - you can start with a familiar one - and then plays the song using the colored notes on the xylophone, oh which the sound tiles have the same colors as the notes in the song book.
If it works smoothly, other music enthusiasts can sing, drum or rattle along.
As a next step, the musician chooses a new song that he doesn't know yet - preferably a shorter one - and plays the tones again according to colour. You can sing to it later. Of course, advanced players can also choose long, unknown songs to play along with!
Have fun learning new songs!
