Good morning, blog readers, and Happy Top 10 Tuesday!

For today’s blog post, I though it’d be fun to compile a list of songs for shaking your shaker eggs to.  Young children love shakers, as the unpitched rhythm gives them confidence for future music making.

Shakers are easy to make.  Add a little rice to a water bottle, and voila!  Shake away.  Click HERE for a previous Tucson Songstress Top 10 Tuesday blog post about making shaker eggs from plastic Easter eggs.

For convenience sake, you can also purchase shaker eggs, too.  They are relatively inexpensive.

About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
