Making a Joyful Noise

Check out these photos from our Making Musical Instruments program on February 16th, funded by an LSTA Grant "All the Seasons of Green," where children made all kinds of noise-makers using everyday household items, like beads, beans, dry macaroni, empty water bottles and milk cartons, old film cases, and paper plates.

Books we read:

Be Quiet, Mike! by Leslie Patricelli (Mike the musically-inclined monkey makes his own drum set.)

Sing, Sophie! by Dayle Ann Dodds (Although no one else in her family likes her loud voice, Sophie's singing soothes her baby brother during a thunderstorm.)

We wrapped up the musical morning with a parade around the room, so the kids could show off their environmentally-friendly cacophany of creativity.
