Candyland – Music Style

fullsizerender-1

I just made this game for our studio! It was an extremely easy and inexpensive game to make. All you need is card stock, Candyland, and a sharpie. If you have an old copy of Candyland laying around I highly recommend making one! If you need to purchase one, I purchased mine at Walmart for only $5.92. It’s a new version of the game and doesn’t have as many pink squares though. Oh well! I divided up the cards so that my students (violinists and violists) get more practice with treble clef.   Thank you Layton Music for the wonderful printable!

This is a fun variation of the game Candyland. This great idea came from Rachel on the Yahoo piano teachers group. To make this game, you will need a Candyland game. On each square, write A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. On the pink candy spaces, draw a bass clef, treble clef, piano, forte, mezzo forte, and a double bar line. Draw a card from the pile, name the note, and move to the corresponding space. If you draw a card with double notes, you get to move double the spaces.

Sometimes I will send this home with children who are struggling with notes, and tell them it counts as practice time.They love that, and come back the next week much better at their notes.

I also made up cards that show the notes on the keyboard, so this game can be used when teaching that skill…
