Make an instrument.

Last time your challenge was to make a rain stick. It was fantastic to see Oskar’s rain stick, thank you very much for sharing your work with us! This week have a look around your home and see what materials you can find to make an instrument. You could use anything, a cereal box, a tissue bow, elastic bands, cardboard tubes, anything. Once you have made your instrument, can you come up with your own song about how a plant grows or what it needs to help it grow? Share your ideas with us by sending your songs and instrument photos to us through our email addresses on the class page!
