Create your own instruments!

Making music does not have to involve fancy or involved instruments. You can create your own instruments using simple, household items with easily collected items.

-two serving spoons clinked together

-wooden spoon on plastic food container

-three or four pennies in a small plastic food container or plastic egg which can fit in the hand

-shaker: empty soda can washed and dried, filled with two tablespoons of dry rice, and taped tightly over the opening

-jingle bells: put three or four jingle bells in an old sock and tie closed or jingle bells tied together on a ribbon



Now that you have created your instruments, march around the house making music while singing  “Yankee Doodle.”  Wee Sing America

Another perfect song is John Philip Sousa’s “Stars and Stripes Forever,” our official national march!

Do sing together the songs which are meaning to you:  “Jesus Loves Me,” “God is So Good,” the first and last lines of “Holy, Holy, Holy,” “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star,” “Row, Row, Row Your Boat.”  Sing and move and have fun!
