Making instruments

You don’t need real instruments in order to create music. You can make your own!

You can make shakers, drums, or string instruments just using household items:

  • Putting dried peas inside a plastic bottle creates a fantastic shaker
  • Stretching elastic bands across an empty ice-cream tub creates an instrument that can be plucked
  • Empty Pringles tins (with metal and plastic lids) can be used as drums

Now encourage residents to play their instruments to the same beat or rhythm.

You could create your own Junk Funk band!
