Rai’s Musical Moments: One Person Band!


Although Rai is an incredible one-man-band, watch this video to find out we can all make music together – even while staying apart.

If you’ve been watching all of Rai’s Musical Moments, by now you’ll know how to make a beat using your body or items from around your house, how to make shakers, and how to make a xylophone using glass jars and water.

Now, put those skills and instruments to good use – we’re making a song!

In this video, Rai records a sound from each of the instruments we have seen in previous episodes. Then, he uses computer wizardry to combine all the sounds into a super groovy tune.

If you (with a parent’s help!) record a 5 second clip of some sounds YOU can make and email it to us, Rai will make a song we have all shared in creating!

Making Ojos de Dios with Ochre


Ojos de Dios (God’s Eyes) are mesmerizing ritual ornaments from Mexico that are said to watch over you, protect you, and perceive things beyond the material realm.

Get lost in the meditation of weaving as you create your own Ojo de Dios. If you hang your Ojo de Dios near where you work or over a doorway, it could bring you good luck!

You will need:
– two straight and fairly solid sticks for every God’s Eye you want to make
– colourful string, yarn, or wool
– scissors
– a comfortable spot to sit as you weave

The Tallest Tower with Max


We’ve all heard the legends about towers as tall as the sky…. but can Max, our tallest Aeonite, build a tower taller than he is? Are you able to make something as tall as yourself – or another family member?

After you’ve built your tower, of course, comes the fun of knocking it down and starting all over again!

Rai’s Musical Moments: Rainy Day Rainstick


Do you enjoy the peacefulness of a rainy day? The sound of raindrops falling on a window or roof can be magically soothing…

You will need:
– 1 medium to long sized cardboard tube
– small nails and a hammer (plus the help of an adult for nailing them in!)
– paper, scissors, and tape
– small grains or seeds, for example popcorn kernals
– things to decorate your rainstick – colourful tape, paper, or coloured textas

We’d love to see your best rain dance once you’re finished!
