Find Your Rhythm

Pera Kids
Ages 4-6

What is coffee? Yes, it is a hot beverage we drink from a cup. Are you ready to create your own rhythm and your own song using cups? Together with our family at our homes, we will gather coffee cups in different sizes, as well as wooden sticks or pencils. We will sit down in a circle so we can see each other better. We will examine the cups we have picked, and discuss their shapes, sizes and colors. Then, we will discover the sounds we can create using our cups and sticks/pens. Do the cups make the same sound regardless of where we hit it, or do certain parts make different sounds? Have you ever heard similar sounds? What do they sound like? After listening to these new sounds, we will make a rhythm using our cups and pencils (ting-ti-ting, clang-cla-clang…), which our family will try to imitate afterwards. Go on, show your unique rhythm!
