Playback

What you need: two people, a piano and 2 percussion instruments

What you do: one person claps (or taps on instrument) a 4-beat rhythm pattern. The other player mimics the pattern. Continue making the pattern more difficult until the other player is “stumped.” Play the same game, making up melody patterns on the piano. Twist:  take turns being the “teacher”. The “teacher” has to determine if the “student” played the pattern back correctly.  The “student” may play back the pattern incorrectly on purpose–this is especially fun to do with parents!
