Here's another resonator bell idea that I use and the kids really enjoy. I put two sets out. I play on one set, and a child plays on the other. I play a note; they try to find the matching note. They cannot see which note I play as I have mine all jumbled up and hidden behind the cover of the resonator bells. But as they search, I remind them, "Is mine higher or lower?" "That is very close," etc. Of course, before this we have discussed size vs. pitch. When everyone has had a chance, then THEY try to stump ME! They play a note, and I have to find it on the first try! They think it is magic that I can do this!!!
