Water Chimes

Supplies Needed:

8 glasses (same size and shape)



#1: Line up the 8 glasses.

#2: Fill the first glass about 1/8th full of water for the high note. The second should be about ¼ full and the third should be 3/8ths full. Continue this for all 8 glasses.

#3: Each glass should sound like a note on the music scale (do,re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti, do). You can adjust the sound my adding or taking water out.

#4: Have the child use the metal teaspoon to gently tap out the scale and other melodies (like twinkle, twinkle little star). You can add food coloring the each glass so that it is easier to identify which glass is what sound.

#5: Have your child make their own melody by printing out a music sheet and record each note by placing a number on the sheet or they can use a crayon and color a small dot according the color of the glass hit.
