Try something different

Learn a new skill!


Just for fun, this week I would like you to have a go at whittling- making an instrument from a vegetable! I know that sounds a little bit silly, but there are lots of videos that make it look quite easy and fun (fingers crossed!). You will definitely need help from your grown ups though to help you make your instrument. 


Click on the video below to watch how to make a carrot recorder! You will need a knife and a drill if you have one so you must do this with your grown up!



There are other instruments that you could make too! Have a Google and have a play and see what you can come up with! You could try a celery guitar, a pepper horn or a cucumberphone- have a go!


Take a look at this newsround clip as well:



Remember, make sure you do it with your grown up! I am excited and intrigued to see what you create and what kind of sound it makes!? 

Don't forget to show us your creations- even if they don't turn out quite as planned! Have fun laugh
