Botcel

By Clay

The name of my instrument is Botcel. When I was drinking pop I got the idea. I would say it is in the percussion group. It can be loud or soft. It was a rattle tone also. I used a pop bottle, pencils, tape, and popcorn. I found the materials around the house. The popcorn seeds go around the pencils to make different sounds.

I took a pop bottle and duck taped it around the bottle and stuck the pencils in it. Then I added popcorn seeds. My mom helped me add the popcorn seeds. It was hard to stick the pencils in the bottle.

You slowly turn the bottle. How you move the bottle makes different sounds. You can shake it harder to make it louder.

I enjoyed making the instrument. I can say I love making an instrument. You can make it sound different in so many ways.
