Shake and Shake and… Hit

Activity Instructions:

Pass out tambourines. Allow children to explore hitting, tapping, and shaking the tambourine. With Kid Rock, tap different rhythms, and have children echo them back to you.

Then sing the song. Feel free to change lyrics to “tap and stop” and tap the head of the tambourine on your head, elbow, or knee, or put the tambourine on the floor and tap head of tambourine like a drum.
