Making Music

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day exploring musical instruments (amongst other things!).  My littlest children are taking interest in how things work at the moment and have spotted the balls inside our bells so we shook some shakers and talked about the balls inside there too, we rolled a ball around a drum and bounced it on the skin to make a noise and we found a drum with beads in that we could see moving around as we shook it.  All of these different sounds build a bigger picture of how things work and we’ll extend the activity further by making our own instruments.  It was great for developing dextrous little fingers as well as they manipulated the instruments 🙂
