English - transcript English - transcript We're discussing how to make household itemsinto musical instruments. Today we're going to make some container shakers. This is one of my favorites because it's supereasy, it's fun and your kids will love it and they get a chance to look what's insideyour cabinets and see what you can make into a musical instrument. So what you're goingto need is, you're going to need anything around the house that's food that might makea shaking sound. So some beans. I have some lentils. I have some rice. You can also usepopcorn, macaroni, anything that makes a sound. Then you're going to need different size ofshakers so I got a soup container here, I have a tin can and an old glass jar. So step one is to decorate your shaker. Don'tforget to get creative. You can get stickers and some construction paper. You could allpretty glitter, whatever you want. And then step two is to experiment with different sounds.So, you know, you might want to take one piece of bean. One popping sound. You might wantto add a few more. Add a little lentils. Sounds good. Little bit of rice. You could experiencewith what sound's what. So this is a plastic container. Let's seewhat it sounds like with a tin container. It's probably going to have a different sound.Yeah, it does. And you can also use straws. In this one I used some cool beads. Differentcolors, it's colorful. I even put some string in it to kind of trap the sounds a littlebit and that's really easy to do. Just put two holes on either side of the containerand put the string through and put some knots on each end. So this is how we make a containershaker. Take a plastic jar, wrap her in some paper, fill with rice and beans, you got yourselfa shaker. Yeah.
