Make Your Own Guiro
Turn an empty water bottle into a "green" guiro!
An empty ridged water bottle
A stick, chopstick, spoon or pencil
Embellishments: stickers, glitter glue, ribbon
Sand and/or water: optional—to change the tone of the instrument
How to do it:
Place the cap back on the bottle.
Decorate the instrument with stickers and glitter. Tie a ribbon around the neck of the bottle to give it a little flair.
Slide a stick or chopstick, spoon or pencil on the bottle ridges.
Adjust the tone of the instrument by filling it with water or sand.
Play your instrument and have fun!
