Body Percussion

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Christine Hare

Explain to the children you are going to use different parts of their body to make music and pretend to be an orchestra.

Start with the head - bounce hand up and down and say "BOING, BOING"

Then add one sound each time, keeping the same order beginning again each time from the start.

Push finger onto nose and say "Honk, Honk"

Pull one ear lobe then the other and say "Ding, Dong"

Clap hands and say "Clap, Clap"

Tap knees and say "Tap, Tap"

Stamp feet and say "Stamp, Stamp"

If you are standing up - you can wiggle your bottom and say "wiggle, wiggle"

Put them all together and you have your own orchestra!

For a bit of extra fun, do it backwards, starting with the bottom/feet - it's quite tricky!
