notes at susanparadis.com.
If your child is learning the notes on piano there is a
very cute icecream activity at laytonmusic.wordpress.com
Here she has plain keyboard cards with a dot. (Like the
icecream part below.)
You can use them as three part cards, placing the key
board and letter onto the full card, you could play memory,
matching and so forth.
Here is a colorful keyboard you can use for helping your piano player to identify certain notes.
Your kids can build their own keyboard with the printout there.
Again, I would only use any of the activities above for about five
minutes in any one class (and would probably only do one little
activity because my kids are still very young). I'm just sharing them
all at once so you have an idea of the resources I have on hand.

UPDATE, Fall 2015:
My youngest is now 7 and this semester the kids will be learning/reviewing notes, rhythm, music notation and more. Using a lot of free resources, I have put our Music Curriculum plans together into a 8-week plan (it might take us longer) that is a free download over at my new location, homeschoolden.com.
The packet is 15 pages or so AND it has hyperlinks to many *amazing* free music resources (including the ones I show below and dozens more!). Again, you will find that new post over at my new location, homeschoolden.com: Free Beginner's Music Curriculum: Learning Notes, Rhythm, Music Notation and more See you there! ~Liesl
You'll find links to lots of the different games and activities we'll be using:
