MAKING & PLAYING HOMEMADE INSTRUMENTS
Homespun Tapes, Ltd.® ©1989
Did you know that you can make a banjo out of a bleach bottle? A conga drum from an oatmeal box? Maracas from frozen orange juice cans? Cathy Fink & Marcy Marxer invite kids, parents and teachers to help them make and play these and other homemade instruments. You’ll also learn to make—and really play—a Yardstick Mouthbow, Bottle Cap Castanets and a Washtub Bass. All you need are the simplest tools and inexpensive easy-to-find materials. This colorful video is the perfect way to spend a rainy afternoon or to enhance classroom or camp activities. Many of these instruments require tools, so plan to make this a fun kid and adult activity.
