Child Central Station is having a blog hop about outdoor music play. Inspired, I found the photos from our music wall!
|It started off pretty simply...with just a few pans and a recycled bottle of bubble juice.|
|Our fence is metal, so anytime you bang on the pots or chime, there is a nice ringing sound. The plastic bottle is fun to throw over the fence...|
|You can see Chris in the back working out how to get the plastic bottle back to his side of the fence. In the foreground, the gals enjoy making music.|
|Robert bangs on the pan like a drum, making two sounds at once: His hands banging on the pot, and the pot banging against the fence.|
|Later, I added more recycled plastic bottles, each with a different filling: colored rice, beans, small pebbles, sand, and water.|
|Again, while it was fun to shake them, many children enjoyed throwing them over the fence and back. Bonus: when the bottle would hit the fence, it made a satisfying sound!|
I am super inspired by the other ideas for outdoor music play I saw on the blog hop! I've already made plans with my director to put some of them into effect as soon as possible. Check them out for yourself:
