So we have spent a bit of time over the last few weeks with wood and glue… now it is time to develop some skills using a hammer and nails!
It is tricky stuff coordinating it all but if we practice we will get there!
Practice, and a lot of focus and concentration.
Now that we have mastered the skills involved, let’s make a ‘lagerphone” (an idea suggested and resourced by Kay… a wonderful student teacher working with us at the moment).
And then, it is time to get down and boogie!
A challenging and very rewarding experience!
You will find lot’s more wonderful woodwork ideas in the following links:

  1. Nice. I do something like this w my early childhood students. They use hammers and cordless screwdrivers. They love it, esp the noise of the screwdrivers.

    Looks like a lot of fun and "real" work! Have you tried using a clothespin to hold the nails? A tip I learned recently from a friend and helps save some fingers until they improve their aim!

    Thanks Marcia… I hope it was useful in some way! 🙂

  6. My girls would love to make musical instruments like that. Might have to give it a go this school holidays.

    Was really easy Marita for the children to manage (We did pre-drill the holes in the bottle tops). The children loved them! Good luck with it! 🙂

  8. Loving your blogs, I am new to this medium of communication and love getting new ideas. I am a Kindergarten teacher and we use a set of pliers to hold the nails for the children to hammer, hadnt thought of a clothes peg, will do this as well as these are much cheaper than pliers. Many thanks, Donna
