Empty bottle orchestra
August 21, 2009
Sometimes it's the simplest party activity that can be the most fun.
With a couple of empty glass bottles, you can give your party guests the unique experience of being part of an empty bottle orchestra.
The first step is to get at least six empty bottles, clean them and fill them up with various levels of water.
Once the water is in there, inform your guests to start blowing across the top of the bottle, which should create a tone. The amount of water in the bottle will determine the sound of the tone.
From there, have a couple of people blowing on the bottles in an effort to get a certain tune going.
For those who may have trouble creating a sound from blowing on the bottle (it is an acquired skill), consider giving them some pots and pans to use as drums.
As for party decorations, put up some cutouts of records to embrace the musical theme of the party. And don't forget the camera to capture some of the special musical moments that occur. In fact, maybe taking some video would be a better idea.
