Tree Tone Blocks Illustration

Find different scraps of wood and sand them smooth. Drill a hole near the top of each one. (Click here for information on sanding and drilling.) Hang the wood blocks from a low tree limb. When you strike them with rhythm sticks, they will make different sounds.

Experiment with different sizes and kinds of wood until you can make sounds you like.

Maybe some of your friends who like to dance can make up dances to go with your tree music.

Maybe the wind will play your tone blocks while you are asleep.
