I have a set of Boomwhackers and would like them in octaves so another set with Octave caps fit the bill and a CD of special activities to add to my repertoire doesn't hurt either.

Is there a visual video showing the way these boomwhackers are handled in playing them along with the handbells for children?
I live in a 55+ community and I am the director in playing certain songs and hymns with a group that loves playing the bells. I'm thinking that I would like to enhance the music with added background instruments that would not be too difficult for Senior citizens to play.

Best Answer: There is not a DVD, but they are just played by hittng them together or on the floor/table, etc. They are long, plastic pitched tubes. They are easy to play. I've only used them with children, but they love them.
