I have a new game to share today: Piano Finger Twister!
This game was inspired by a “Finger Twister” Happy Meals toy I found at a thrift store recently. I saw it on the shelf and instantly thought, “I can make a music game out of that!” Here’s a photo of the original game that inspired me:
This game is a great way to teach RH versus LH, and the piano fingering 1-5. Here’s how it works: The student spins the spinner (pictured below), which tells the student which hand and finger to put on a colored dot on the playing mat. After a few rounds of this, the students hands and fingers will be pretty busy on the mat…and when it’s no longer possible to hang on to all the right dots, it’s game over!
To download the printable, visit the Printables > Games page and scroll down to the P’s for “Piano Finger Twister game.” The only materials you will need once you print and cut out the parts is a spinner. I found the package of spinners below at Hobby Lobby. You can often find spinners at teacher supply stores too.
