Music is such a universal connection we all share.
My little ones really enjoy listening to and singing along with music.  I decided we should keep busy creating some instruments and learning how to keep a beat.  
So here's what we did.

Paper plate guitars
I hot glued a 2 paper plates together and then glued on a paint stir stick.  
We added some long elastics and strummed away.

This was such a great fine motor activity.  The kids put lots of small pieces into a clean water bottle.  
When it was full, I hot glued on the lid (to prevent opening in case of choking hazard).  We decorated a tube and glued it onto the bottle as a handle.  They loved it.

We created these by stringing some bells and caps onto a pipe cleaner.  I then taped them to a small wooden dowel (Dollar Store).

I hot glued 2 metal lids onto a piece of folded heavy cardstock.
The kids decorated them and we added a little finger handle on the back.

And what would music week be without a microphone.  
What fun they had singing and dancing using their microphones.

Always lots of colouring and cutting too!

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.


  1. Absolutely wonderfully creative projects for your little ones, a super idea, Kate x

  2. Fun music week. I can image the kiddos strumming on their paper plate guitars are having fun with the castanets, whilst singing along with their microphones x. Such fun x
