Watch this video to help you think about the different ways to make sounds from household objects:

We can also find things in our recycling that we can use to make instruments. Get help from a grown-up in case there are any sharp objects.

Now watch this video and see what you can do to make an instrument to shake or tap.

What can you find that can make a good noise? Can you make a shaker or a rain stick? Or a type of drum? Ask an adult to help you. Maybe you would like to decorate it as well.

You can then use these instruments any time and also in some of the Music activities. Have fun!

 

Time to move!

Dance or play along with your instruments to this hiphop classic.

Time to relax

Chill to this piano version of Imagine by John Lennon.
