All children love making a noise so why not encourage them to make their own instruments made from things at home. Here are some ideas:
Yogurt Pot shakers: take used yogurt pots and fill with lentils. Cover with paper and then tape down to secure. Decorate with stickers or pictures taped round the pot.
Crisps tube long shaker: put a handful or large pasta shapes into the tube and pop on the lid. Tape down to secure.
Ice cream tub drum: put some dried bean or peas into a used ice cream tub and bang to hear them shake around inside.
Tubey shake: Take along wrapping paper tube and pop in a round ball or bell. Turn upside down to hear it roll down.
Trumpet: take a kitchen roll tube and decorate. Add some tassels on the end and ribbons to make it look great Simply toot down the tube!
Tin drum: take a biscuit tin and add some metal bottle tops or little metal spoons. Shake for a or bang for a metal sound.
Marble rolling: pop some marbles in a small metal tin swirl them to make a metal rolling sound.
Plate tambourine: Use a paper plate and punch hole round the outside. Take some nuts and bolts and metal items and tie them round with string or wool. Shake to hear them clang together.
Now, just put on some music and have a jamming session!
