Christmas Snowman Music Note Recognition Game

A game to support note recognition in the treble and bass clefs.


  • 4 printable game boards covering different ranges of pitch (two in the treble clef and two in the bass clef)
  • 8 game cards
  • Instructions

How to play the game:

  • Place a token for each player on the board.
  • Lay the game cards in a pile.
  • Players take turns to roll a dice and move their token around the board. The player must identify each note the land on, and say a word starting with that letter which fits the description on the top game card. Each card is used until a player can’t think of a suitable word.
  • If a player can’t think of a word that fits, they keep the card, and the next card is used for the next turn.
  • The winner is the player with the fewest cards when all cards have been used.

Example - a player lands on note G. The description on the card in play is ‘Something you might find on Santa’s sleigh…’ . The player could say ‘gifts’, then it would be the next players turn, using the same game card. If a player lands on note D and cannot think of something starting with D, the player keeps that card and the next player takes a turn using the next game card on the pile.

Laminate for extra durability.
