Toys

As we were working on dynamics for the song we’re doing for the Christmas program I thought of this fun prop for the kids to use.

Take an empty wrapping paper roll and cut a set of parallel slits about 2″ deep on each side. Cut 5″ squares of card stock and write or glue dynamic markings on both sides of them (we used pp, p, ff, f last week, but I intend to make more).

Insert the cards you want to use that week and watch your helper grin while he or she spins the tube around, controlling the volume of the singing šŸ™‚

I’m going to save all my empty wrapping paper rolls in case this one gets squished, wet, or the cards become loose in the slots.
