Lesa's Maracas

by Lesa

My instrument is called Lesa's Maracas. I got the idea for making my instrument from Mrs. Rexford. my instrument belongs to the percussion family. One interesting thing about my instrument is that one is loud and the other is soft.

To make my instrument I used the following materials: coke bottles, beads, rocks and buttons. I found my materials in the art room at school.

I made my instrument by putting beads, buttons, and rocks in the bottles. One person who helped me was Mrs. Rexford. She helped by giving me the bottles. The biggest problem I had when making my instrument was how many rocks, beads and buttons to put in the bottles.
