The Jingle Stick


Amanda K., 4th grader at Meadowview Elementary School

I made my instrument out of 2 round wood sticks, bells (big and small), leather, and hot glue. I bought the supplies and brought them home. I cut the stick in two and used strips of leather to tie the two together and then to tie the bells on. I used hot glue to secure the leather straps from moving. I even used braided leather on the handle. When you shake it, the bells make sound. It is a percussion instrument.
