Printable Playdoh Mats to Learn Music Notes!

For a fun and a little different activity, I thought it would be great to teach the children a little more about music notes and theory! To make it fun and interesting for the kids, you can use these Printable Playdoh Mats to learn music notes!

This would work well as a Primary activity days lesson, use it at home with your kiddos, or add it as one of your 3 singing time activities during the week spending 5-7 minutes talking about music notes!

Depending on your Primary size and structure, this may or may not work during an actual singing time, but I still thought it would be super fun to share here with you as music leaders!

Some Ideas for Using these in Activity Days, Primary, or at Home:

Create a fun lesson where you learn all about music! As a music leader, you could volunteer to attend one of their weekly activities and bring in some fun instruments.

Talk about what some of the different music notes look like, how long you hold different notes, and practice holding notes with ooohs and aaahs (like we did for I Will Walk with Jesus Letter Sounds). Or, bring in an instrument and shake for the length of each of the notes!

Roll out the different notes with playdoh, or my preference is kinetic sand! The sand is easier to clean-up and so fun to manipulate! When they’ve made one, you can have them rotate the cards down the row and they can try the next music note.

Race to see who can complete their playdoh mat music note shape the fastest!

Print extra copies and fold up the line of what the note is called. Then, quiz the kids on what the note names are and how long each is held!

Bring in a metronome and have the kids learn to count off notes, then match to the correct shape!

Print out a sheet of music from one of the Primary songs, maybe I Am a Child of God. Have the kids hunt for the different music notes and highlight or color the one you just taught, then switch to a new color and find the next music note type.
