STARCH FOR STIFFENING CROCHET ITEMS
(This starch works on most crocheted items) Combine 1/4 cup water and 3/4 cup sugar in a small pan. Place over low heat and stir until mixture is clear-- not sugary. Do not let the mixture boil at any time! When mixture becomes clear, shut off the burner and let it cool. Wet the crocheted item with water and dab out any excess moisture with a towel. Dip item into the mixture and place over a bottle, cup or class -- anything that will give you the shape you desire. Let it dry.

MUSIC IS CHEAP



Entertain children by letting them make their own music.
Many household items make great instruments!


^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*

MARACAS
Can be made by filling an empty, plastic lemon
with popcorn or other seeds. Securely tape a
dowel rod, pencil or stick in the open end after
filling with seed and shake. Lemons may also be
decorated with paints, stickers or colored tape.

^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*


PAN FLUTE

Tape together cut up pieces of old garden hose.
Blowing in the different lengths of hose makes
different sounds.

^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*

HORN
Cut a point on a drinking straw. Be sure to
trim off the tip of the point!

Blow on it with your lips held tight. To make
different sounds, punch a small hole in the
tube of the straw; cover and uncover with finger.
Straws may be cut shorter for higher pitch.

^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*^&*

DRUMS AND PERCUSSION

Use old pots and pans, pan lids,
perculator baskets (if there are still any around!)--
Strum graters with a stick
