Photo: A homemade Boomwhacker Keyboard
Looking for a fun way to store your boomwhackers AND reinforce concepts like sharps and flats? Try a boomwhacker keyboard! This one took my boyfriend about 20 minutes to put together and it's so simple.
2 long 2x4s (look in the cull section at home depot- that's the DISCOUNT wood section.)
8 white garbage bins and 5 black garbage bins from the dollar tree.
Glue (if desired for EXTRA hold)
Labels for the bins (See File Below)
Screw the frame together, sand the edges and paint it/seal it. The back section needs to be higher than the front section so that you can see the labels on the bins, Then screw the garbage bins in and label them. That's it! We didn't use a template or exact measurements, either.
Did you try this in your classroom? Have a question or suggestion? Let us know in the comments below!
