Boomwhackers



We've had some boom-whacker sets laying around here at KI and I can't keep my hands off them. I first saw them a few years ago in an Orff class (one of the many musical learning method on which Kindermusik is based).

Know any fun boom-whacker activities? Send them to me: mollymcginn@gmail.com

We *LOVE* boomwhackers in our children's choirs at church! We've even played some hymns with ours and the kids thought it was *really* cool!

Check out this website, Molly:

In the very center at the top is a listing for "Community" and in it you will see "Boomwhacker Central". Click this link and prepare to use a lot of printer's ink!

Have fun and thanks for sharing the video. I especially enjoyed the boy's conducting - tempo, dynamics, etc. :-)
