Five Easy Music Crafts for the End of Year

Do you ever discover fun music crafts online, save them for later, and then never try them? Me too. I used to pin ideas or bookmark websites, thinking I’d get to them later. Inevitably, most of those music craft ideas were left unused by the end of the year; partly because they didn’t really fit with what I was teaching at the time, and also because I just plain forgot about them.

Not this year! Spring is the perfect time to start asking staff and parents for the items you’ll need for some easy end-of-year music crafts. There’s just something about saving old toilet paper rolls for school projects that makes us all a bit nostalgic.

  • cardboard tube (the longer the better)
  • markers/stickers for decorating

  1. I'm with you- I always pin these things and then forget about them >_<; This is a great reminder. You're right, the end of the school year is a great time to pull this stuff out!
