Use a shoe box (without a lid) and three or four rubber bands of different thicknesses. Stretch the rubber bands across the shoe box. Now you can strum them or pluck them and listen for the different sounds! You might want to try different size bands and different size boxes to see how the sounds change. You could even create an entire string section of a pretend orchestra!
Try playing along with a Mister Rogers' song or any other music.
|It's more than music you'll be making; you'll be encouraging an interest in sounds and science, helping your child develop listening skills, and most important of all, sharing some time together.|
