This is great! So easy and so useful! I got some great cloth bags from BearPawCreek and used them to store instruments. But I had one or two extra. I put all my instruments into a bin and used the bag to scoop one up without the children being able to see what I was doing. Then, I played the instrument with my hands inside the bag and asked the kids to tell me what they heard. We repeated the game for several common rhythm instruments and the class loved it! We then followed up with a group instrumental song.
Good for the following skills: auditory discrimination, auditory memory, expressive language, attention span and focus.
