We Explore Sound

  • 7-12-13: Only three families came and only one of them could stay. The kids weren't that interested, so they read books and the mom and I made wind chimes and talked about our plans for middle school visits next year (she's a teacher). Sometimes summer is like that.
I just went with lots of recycled supplies for this. We poked holes in the tops of the cups with pointed pliers and the point of my compass, then used a hole punch to make holes around the edge. We used a pipe cleaner for the top to hold it, then ribbon around the edges. Then we tied stuff to the ribbon and tested out how it sounded.

  • Plastic cups
  • Yarn, ribbon
  • Scissors, tape, hole punch, compass, glue dots
  • buttons, pony beads, metal washers, straws, popsicle sticks
