A fun, musical guessing game that children enjoy playing!
For: For kids under 12 years
Intensity level: Medium
Equipment: 2 Wooden Spoons
This is a oldie but goodie. Children love to sing songs, and in this game they get to guess the song. Give an adult two wooden spoons. The purpose of this game is to have children guess the name of a song by only tapping out the rhythm using only the two wooden spoons provided.
Try to use songs that most children would be familiar with. Also, start off with simple songs as a warm up, and work up to more difficult songs. Songs include: This Old Man, Row, Row, Row Your Boat, The Star Spangled Banner, etc…
To make the game more user friendly, children can also be asked to write down the name of a song on a small piece of paper, and toss them into a jar. Therefore, whomever is tapping out the songs, can pull the name of one out of the jar and play that one.
