Ah, Spring. The time of testing, field trips, events, Spring break, and more. With all of the craziness, you may need a one off Spring rhythm lesson– and this flower rhythm craft is the perfect one! It’s simple, it’s fun, it’s different from your normal music activity…. And it’s free! It’s especially perfect if you have to go to the teachers’ classroom during testing, or if you want a spring centers activity!

This flower rhythm craft is completely free, and you can use it with every grade level. The rhythms are on separate pages, so you can print out just quarter and eighth notes, or quarter notes, eighth notes, and half notes– whatever grade level you want.

How to use the flower rhythm craft:

This craft includes a lot of options. First off, check out the file and print out the pages you need. Depending on what grade level you are using this with, you’ll need to print out the rhythms that your kids need. Each rhythm is on a separate page, so print just the ones you need.

Second, use your flower rhythm craft printables to cut out the pieces. If you’re using these for centers, you’ll want to print them out, laminate, and cut them. (Click here to learn more about prepping centers)

If you’re using it as a craft, then I just cut in the middle of the petals and have the students cut the petals out in more detail. 

Have students pick out a paper, stem, petals, and create their rhythm! You can use the time signatures, and even add the bar lines to include multiple measures if you want to do that. I like to put them all on the table or on the floor in the front, and have students choose what they need. 

I have students raise their hand and check their measures before I let them glue. I keep the glue, and I give them the glue after I double check that it is correct. 

Last step is to decorate! Have students draw on their flower to add more interest.

Use the flower to decorate a bulletin board or have students take them home– their parents will love to see the work they’ve been doing!
