The first station that we went to was making instruments. Each age group made different instruments based on their age. The 4-5 year olds made shakers out of toilet paper rolls. We put rice and beans inside and then taped a paper over the top and bottom. Then we got to decorate the whole thing by putting tissue paper on contact paper and then putting the contact paper on the toilet paper roll. Since we had a little extra time, we got to make paper plate tambourines. The kids colored on the plates. Then we put rice and beans inside and taped the plates shut.
Our next rotation was a drum circle. The kids got to go on stage and pick a drum. My kids went straight for the bass drums and snare drums and didn't want to try the hand drums. They got to switch instruments and N2 just switched with each other which Brian's students thought was really funny! Each kid got to play a solo if they wanted.
We had a great time and it seems like everyone else did as well!
