SUBJECT: Bottle cap bells
DramaQueen worked on a music project today. Her assignment: Create a musical instrument and document your process. She went with the percussion group and made a tree from dowels with four branches. Off each branch hangs a different item to percuss with a homemade mallet….a paper plate tambourine filled with beads; a single chime, bracelet jangles and these bottle cap bells. I showed her how to drill a hole to insert the dowels into the main trunk and she did the others. Other than a slight mishap with plaster of paris spillage on the kitchen floor (quickly wiped up) it went smoothly. Even though she did 99% of the work, I think I’m ready for school projects to be over for awhile.
