Rhythm Kaboom - eighth and quarter note/rest game
Rhythm Kaboom Game


Popsicle sticks
Rhythm cards printed, laminated and cut up from attached sheet
Container to hold the sticks (a powdered drink canister like Crystal Light, I cover them with colorful duct tape or scrapbook paper)

Set Up The Game:

Attach the rhythm and KABOOM cards to the popsicle sticks (hot glue with packing tape works great.)
Put a colored dot on the other end of the popsicle stick (this helps with sorting games that have been mixed up.)
Put all of the sticks in the container, rhythm card first.

Rules to Play:
1. Decide who will go first and choose a popsicle stick from the container without looking.
2. Read the rhythm that is on the stick and check with your partner(s) if your answer is correct. If your answer is correct, you keep the stick. If your answer is incorrect, put the stick back in the container.
3. If you pull a stick with the word KABOOM on it, then you must put all of the sticks that you have into the container, except the KABOOM stick. Do not put it back in the container, put it to the side.
4. Play until all the sticks are used and the person with the most sticks WINS the game.
