In this activity children will have the chance too make an instrument. You empty a tissue box. Let the children decorate their box with markers and stickers. They can also paint them. Then you need rubber bands (different widths if possible) One by one, slip the rubber bands onto the tissue box so that they go over the opening in the box. The children can play thier instrument to the class.
Here's a fun way for kids to learn about music from different cultures. The thumb piano is a popular instrument throughout Africa. Experiment with the sound made by having the pins at different distances apart. Paint it your favorite colors and get playing!

Did you know that straws can make music… or rather, that if you cut drinking straws into different lengths, they will make different sounds when you blow into them? Just try it! And when you put them together, there might even be music :)
