Sound Cylinders

Our sound cylinders needed revamping, so I thought the yogurt smoothie containers would be great for this activity, too.

To make the cylinders, I filled each pair of cylinders with the following materials: rice, lentils, black beans, and sand. I glued red and blue cardstock circles to the tops of each cylinder. The cylinders have matching stickers on the bottoms for self checking.


  1. Great idea! I like how you made the tops red and blue for matching!

  2. I might just need to make these for Egg. Daft question alert! How hard, as an adult do you find this activity?

  3. I love this idea! How do you seal the tops?
