STEP 2: Instruct the children to start drawing when you play the music and stop drawing when the music stops.
STEP 3: When the music stops, instruct the children to leave their area and move to the next child’s area.
STEP 4: Start the music again and instruct the children to continue drawing and coloring on their neighbor’s sheet until the music stops again.
STEP 5: Continuing this process, move and complete the steps again until you have determined that time is up or they make it back to their original seat and sheet of paper.
STEP 6: When each child makes it back to their original seat have them each display their collective finished artwork.
