Music Monday (April 4)

Music Monday is more than singing and dancing, it’s a way to encourage children to be active while developing their early literacy skills and having fun with friends and family!

Activities:

  1. Make a musical instrument
  2. Record a music video of your classroom playing their instruments to things they love, such as Baby Shark, The Goldfish, shake sillies out, floor is lava, etc.
    *If you plan to upload your video to social media, be sure to avoid using the actual song in your video to avoid copyright issues.

Example of a musical instrument:

Paper Roll Rain Stick

Supplies:

  • Paper towel roll
  • Rice (or beads, beans, meltable craft beads, etc.)
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Tape
  • Paper
  • Rubber bands

Instructions:

  1. Twist together two pipe cleaners end to end, then twist them around your fingers to create a spiral just smaller than the diameter of the paper roll.
  2. Insert the pipe cleaners into the paper towel roll and tape one end of the pipe cleaner inside one end of the roll. Stretch the pipe cleaner spiral until it reaches the other end of the roll and tape in place. This will be used to slow the flow of rice in the rain stick.
  3. Cut two 5” x 5” squares of paper. Lay one piece of paper on the end of the paper towel roll and fold it over the end. Rubber band in place.
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of rice to the roll. Cover the other end with the other square of paper and rubber band in place.
  5. Decorate as desired.
