What to do with leftover macaroni from the DIY Macaroni Harp String Necklace project? Well, one thing is download this free printable and send your students home with some fun homework! Or if you're a student, surprise your teacher by bringing this worksheet completed to your lesson.
In the example above, the student also added levers and legs with clay and labeled the parts of the harp.
This would be a great activity for beginning harp students to practice observing the order of the strings. It can also be a helpful aid for memorizing the descending order of the strings. Another option is to make it a family project...maybe a young (or not-so-young!) student could even use the worksheet to teach his/her family about the strings and/or the parts of the harp. Crafts can be fun (and beneficial) for students of many ages and levels, so don't feel that you can only use this with kids or beginners. You might have some adult students who enjoy this more than you would expect!
