There are several kinds of musical instruments that you shake to play. My daughter’s teacher challenged us to make a shaker instrument from things at home, and this is what we came up with. It’s kind of like a maraca, but we used what we had on hand.
- Container (tin, plastic, glass)
- Something that shakes inside it (rice, beans, beads, or apparently candy🤣)
- Add shakable things to your container.
- Fasten the top on (You don’t want anything flying.)
- Play your heart out.
Have fun creating your own musical instrument out of things you have around the house!!!
