1. Supply the music area with a variety of household items and challenge the
children to create their own instruments. Encourage the children to discover
as many ways as they can to create “music” with the items.
2. Items could include boxes, wooden spoons, spoons in various sizes,
aluminum pie pans, large wide-tooth combs, plastic cups in various sizes, and
3. Provide empty paper towel tubes. Cover one end with strips of masking tape,
let children fill them with various small items, and seal the other end. The
sound will change depending on the size and shape of the items. Be sure to
seal the ends well.
