Homemade Rhythm

Providing an outlet with any kind of music is a good way to help a child learn who he is. Rhythm instruments are wonderful to have on hand to use with a piano, with songs on television,, and with cds or tapes. Here are some ideas you might use:

---Can with lid containing beans or pebbles.

--Solid wood blaock and mallet for pounding.

--Box with rubber bands strung across for strumming.

--Rubber bands strung across chair for harp.

--Pail upside down with sticks for drum.

--Washboard and thimbles for fingers.

--Kitchen pans and spoons for beating rhythm.

--two pot lids for cymbals.

--Cardboard tubes from waxed paper or paper towels for 'tooting' through

--Round oatmeal box with wooden sticks.

--Inexpensive tambourines.

--Baby rattles.

--Comb and tissue for humming.
