Recycled Musical Instruments

The Ponies room took part in making some recycled musical instruments. They worked collaboratively to create their instruments, holding bottles steady for each other and experimenting with how much rice and pasta they needed to create different sounds. They experimented with how sounds were made: looking, listening and touching carefully.
Children were encouraged to think about and talk about their ideas. They planned and designed what they wanted to do. They made their own instruments using a range recyclable materials. Children revisited many methods and tools they had used previously.
