I am always amazed at how naturally gifted kids are with rhythm; they are able to pick up a beat and keep time. Using this natural rock star gift we brought out the rhythm sticks and had some fun! I admit, giving toddler big sticks to play with was nervous making, but I found if you give them a task with the stick they do not see the stick as something to whack their sibling with (I had no reports of kids misusing their rhythm sticks!).  We warmed up with this rhythm stick song:

This Is the Way We Play Our Sticks  (Tune of “Here We Go Round The Mulberry Bush”)

 This is the way we tap our sticks, tap  our sticks, tap our sticks,

This is the way we tap our sticks, so early in the morning.

Other verses:

This is the way we tap the floor…

This is the way we tap our shoes… (Stretch legs in front and tap on toes)

At a “Mother Goose on the Loose” workshop they had a brilliant idea of using non-kid music when using instrument, so we tapped out a beat to The Beatles song, “Love Me Do” .
