My instrument is called, "The Sand Shuffle."
My Grandpa, Grandma, and Mom helped me make it.
After making it on paper, I got two blocks from my
barn. I had to measure the block exactly the same.
Then my Granpa cut the block as I watched.
After my Grandpa cut the wood, My Mom and I
went outside to paint the blocks. My Mom held the
block while I sprayed gold paint on the blocks.
Before the paint is dry I sprinkle some gold and
white sparkles on the blocks. Then I let it
After the spray paint dried, I plugged in the
hot glue gun. My Grandma held the block while I
glued on the decorations. When the hot glue gun was
hot, I put on the side of the black gold checkered
ribbon. After the gold ribbons was put on, I glued
2-3 colored stars on each end of the block. I put
2-3 bells on each of the ends of the block also.
After the bells, stars and the golden ribbon was
dry I glued red, white, and green ribbon on the end
of the block. It took me 2 days to complete "The
"The Sand Shuffle" does not have a pitch. You
can make it sound loud or soft, it all depends on
how hard you press. It sounds like scratching. I
had the best time making my "Sand Shuffle."
