All these phrases went through my mind: INSTRUMENT of destruction....of surrrender...of accession...of obediance.... and so on and so forth. And of course there is the musical INSTRUMENT. Well, that is where I went. Simple and straightforward. And I have pictures :)
Every few weeks, I set out INSTRUMENTs at storytime. It often coincides with times when I don't feel like messing with a craft. We have our little music time as an alternative activity!
The kids get pretty excited to choose an INSTRUMENT. They like being told to play nice and loud! I pick a kid-friendly, rhythmic song and we have a little parade around the room with our INSTRUMENTs.
I've often, although half-heartedly, wished I had learned to play a musical INSTRUMENT. I realize it is not too late, but I'm not sure I'm willing to put in the time and effort. It certainly is not as though I have an iota of natural talent. It would be hard work, as most worthwhile things are. Still, I think about it from time to time and fantasize about looking sexy on a cello or something...
Okay! Well...let me wish you a Happy Easter, if you indulge and a happy weekend in any case! Keep your INSTRUMENT clean and let's see who Jasen tags for next week.
