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!

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…

In this episode, Rai takes the opportunity of a rainy day inside to show us how to make a rainstick.

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!

Hannah’s Magic Potions


Make your own magic potion that causes your brother’s hair to fall out…. or gives the holder the ability to talk to animals… or summons a storm!

These pretty, glittery potions also make a great sensory tool for helping kids focus as they watch the glitter swirl around the coloured liquid.

What you will need:

  • Clean glass jars with lids (soaking an empty sauce jar in water + bicarb soda usually helps to remove any labels)
  • Paper, textas or pencils, tape, and ribbon – to create our own labels
  • Food dye (or natural alternative such as beetroot juice)
  • Magic potion ingredients like glitter, small beads, paper confetti, petals, leaves….
  • A drop or two of detergent
