Pipe Cleaner Rhythm Game

This is a fun rhythm game you can make to use with your students. All you need is a package of pipe cleaners and buttons — all from the Dollar Store! I cut every pipe cleaner in half and then made notes (half and whole), numbers, and dynamics. Students can make their own rhythms using whichever time signature they choose.

Here’s a list of everything I made for this simple rhythm game:

  • Quarter Notes — A half note filled in with a button!
  • Half Notes
  • Dotted Half Notes — A half note with a button to the side!
  • Whole notes
  • Time Signatures — 2’s, 3’s and 4’s
  • Bar Lines
  • Dynamics — forte and piano
