Game idea!

To get little ones in a group situation to identify groups of 2/3 black keys. You can play “Lilypads”. Have several of each A4 spread out randomly on the floor. Like musical chairs play music and have children dance around the pond until the music stops. Then they have to find the specified grouping (either 2 black keys or 3). To make it exciting have one less “lilypad” than children so that one child will be “out. They can then help in detecting the next person and be given a percussion instrument to keep with the beat.
