Panpipes a Plenty

Today we had a fun science day, learning about how to make different sounds, first with glass bottles and water and a little blowing…

next, we made some sound with our very own Peruvian-style Panpipes.

First we cut the bamboo into five lengths

so thankful for my helping husband

Then we taped them together with electrical tape and each child used a different color of modeling clay to fit into each bamboo end.

Finally, we made some music

All together now

In the huge stash of children’s/teaching books my sweet neighbor just donated to us, I found a few fun science project books and these two activities were the first things I turned to.  So perfect for Peru and so fun for us as the “minstrel” in our story often plays his Pipes of Pan.
