The Shakie Doodle


Matt, 4th grader at Meadowview Elementary School


The name of my instrument is called the Shakie Doodle. I named it that because you can shake it (my shaker fell off) and also play many different things at the same time.

This instrument was made with 2 pop cans, 2 rubber bands, a cooking oil container, and some strips of ribbon to decorate the Shakie Doodle.

The sound is produced by hitting the Shakie Doodle with a tube on the cans, strumming the rubber bands, and blowing into the top of the cooking oil container. That's how my instrument was made and how I produced the sound.
