Music on the Move

Music on the Move craft

The rhythms of music are a natural for lively dancing. Kids delight in imagining how their favorite instruments might move if they could dance.

  • 1.

    Listen carefully to music that you enjoy. Notice how your favorite instrument sounds. What kinds of movements do these sounds remind you of?

  • 2.

    With Crayola® Crayons or Markers, draw your favorite instrument on white paper.

  • 3.

    Now, imagine how that instrument might look if it could dance to its own music. Give it arms or legs, and draw it in action.

  • 4.

    Add a background or costume to make your instrument show its true personality.
