Native Americans loved music and made it an integral part of their cultures. They would make instruments out of natural materials they could find near their homeland. Kids recreate the experience and learn about music and Native American culture as they craft their own Shell Shaker instrument. All the materials for the Shell Shaker have been included, plus we've included a specially produced CD featuring 21 songs from 12 Native American tribes.

Ages 6 and up.
