History is Alive :: African Instruments

We shook our way through our history of Ancient Africa last week...actually we did a week before Christmas (Ancient African Feast) and finished this week.

Friday afternoon we made these fun bottle cap shakers and had a great conversation about what Ancient African people may have made similar instruments out of.

It was a simple project and since it was me against 5 I did one kid at a time...

At the end we had four African shakers to make music with and a non-stressful craft to end our week!

Thanks to Uncle Kevi for providing all the bottle caps...we appreciate you and know you put a lot of effort into getting these for us!
