Many years ago on facebook a music teacher shared these amazing poster cards I have used often. My copies of the card got water stained over the summer with a leak in my storage room while my classroom was being painted, so I had to make new ones. I have tried to find the original teacher who shared but was unable to. So, thank you, unknown person.
There are many ways to use these - display and ask students to analyze what is happening or for choice in what they want to do next or simply use these as a reminder for yourself about what options you have for different activities. Remember that "Play" doesn't always mean instruments - it can be games, body percussion, or instruments.
