This is a simple little activity and a great add to your outdoor music area.


Go for a walk in the forest to find a stick–  I love this part – it’s nice to get out for a walk and fun to watch the kids hunt for the ‘perfect stick’.  Make sure that it’s thick enough at the top to screw a few hooks in.


Provide the children with sandpaper to sand their stick (if they want a smooth finish). 

Screw hooks into one end of the stick.


Tie colourful ribbon, string and jute to the hooks. 


Add bells! 

Voila! A Music Wand! 


(We also use this as a magic circle wand:)
