STRIKE UP THE BAND
Making home made instruments is a great activity when
young friends are visiting. Let each child choose and make an instrument.
Then play some marching music for them to play and march with or
have them play and march while you sing the following song.
Sung to the tune of "Yankee Doodle"
Little musicians went to town
Playing in a band.
They made music as they went
All across the land.
Hear their music loud and clear
Hear their marching feet.
I just love to hear the band
Marching down the street!
