Boosterthon’s newest character theme, Rock’n Town Live, is headed to your school soon! Every year, we are blown away by our awesome (and crafty) parent volunteers who completely transform their schools to match our theme and help get their students excited about our program.

So, grab your scissors, glue, and some household items, and join us as we make four DYI crafts that will make your school hallways rock this coming school year.

Things you’ll need:


Small round object

Cone-shaped microphone base


Spread a thin layer of glue evenly around your round object - try using a tennis ball. Cover it with a decoration of your choice. We used silver sequins. Next, spread glue evenly on the cone-shaped microphone base and wrap with any string.We used blue yarn, but fun shoe laces or ribbon would work great too. Attach the round object to your  microphone base and you’ll be ready to play a show!

Things you’ll need:



Wooden Loom Frame

Begin by gluing one end of the ribbon to the loom . We used black, but any color works. Wrap the ribbonaround the loom - be sure to cover all the wood. Thread bells onto the ribbon as you go around the loom, spacing them out evenly as you go. When you’ve covered the entire circle, tie off your ribbon and start playing some music.

A DIY drum made from everyday materials around the home.

Things you’ll need:


Rubber band




Grab a bucket from around the house to get started - a paint can could work too. Using a hot glue gun, attach the string in a triangular pattern around your drum. We used yarn, but any string will do. When you’ve gone all the way around, tie off the string. Next, cut a circle out of any fabric. This will be used as the drum head, so you want to be sure and cut it a little bigger than the diameter of your bucket. Use a rubber band to secure the fabric around the top, and cover it with a ribbon that you love. To finish it off, you can add pipe cleaners and puffballs to decorate!
