Something for the “Crafty Folks”

I’ve never considered myself to be very crafty. Pretty much everything I touch with hot glue ends up being a disaster but in times where it’s hard to get materials for your classroom, sometimes a little DIY can stretch dollars.  Head over to http://www.skiptomylou.org/2011/06/26/diy-musical-instruments-craft-camp/ to see a whole post on how to make jingle bells and rhythm sticks with inexpensive materials!  If you’re not crafty enough, you can always ask your parents or students to try these for you!  I thought painting the sticks would be a nice after-school music activity.
