Shake, Rattle, and Roll

We have finished our rattles! Earlier last week, we sewed together two pieces of rawhide with sinew and stuffed our pouches with sand to form our rattles. Once our rattles were dry we painted them and filled them with beans, rocks, and rice to give them a unique 'rattle' sound.

Take a look at our Division 2 artists at work!

When the paint was dry, we filled our rattles with different objects to give them their 'rattle'!

Can you hear the differences between these rattles?

Some of our rattles were created especially for Dads!

Who did you give your rattle to? 

What did you think about making rattles? Was it difficult? Easy? 

How did you decide what objects to put into your rattle to give it its sound?
