Cupcake and baking themed music centers for rhythm! It's a mess of flour, butter, eggs, and icing over here! You must quickly arrange each rhythm card into an order you like and read the rhythm before the cupcakes start to burn in the oven! Help the kids mix the batter, put the cupcakes in the oven, put on frosting, and decorate the cupcakes before you run out of time!

For this center/activity just print off the rhythm cards that you want to use, laminate, and cut apart (there are several different levels of rhythmic difficulty). Then have students arrange rhythms on the task card pages to create their own rhythms!

This product includes:

*10 different cupcake-themed task cards and "baking pan" placement cards.

*120 different rhythm cards to use in centers. Rhythm groupings include quarter/eighth notes and rest, half notes/rest, sixteenth notes, eighth-sixteenth note pairings. See preview for more detail.

*Use as individual activities, small group learning, in learning centers, or leave for a substitute teacher.
