Make a musical scale using 8 milk bottles & water


8 milk boittles, jugs of water, metal spoons to hit


Give a lodge 8 bottles, some jugs of water and spoons to hit the bottles with. The challenge is to work as a team to create a scale. Can be used as a base on an activity night. Can extend by asking them to play a simple tune. Once the scale has been made - get the scouts to blow across the bottles - do they make the same note? Scale is reversed.
