Follow the beat of the leader. Grab a tambourine or some rhythm sticks.
For the leader: Play your instrument with different rhythms, fast and slow. For the children: Follow the beat with your feet!
Have the children line up around a large circle. The leader will then play a beat with the instrument. The children will attempt to follow the beat with their feet. Make sure to change the speed of the beat to encourage different rhythms!
Make it harder by having the children hop, jump or leap to the beat!
