BIG BANG Festival Kits

In celebration of The Ark’s online adventurous music festival, BIG BANG bubble, we have created free festival kits full of music inspired activities for children and families to download and enjoy at home – before, during and after the festival.

Kit 1: Get Festival Ready!

In this kit you’ll find templates and instructions to make five different fun items which will help you get in the festival spirit. Inside you’ll find instructions to make:

  • A Jazz Party Hat
  • A Beautiful Butterfly
  • A Musical Badge
  • A Paper Shaker
  • A Spinning Star

Make one, two or all of them if you like! And don’t forget to bring them with you to a BIG BANG bubble event! This kit was created for you by artist and illustrator Duffy Mooney-Sheppard.

Kit 2: Activate your Musical Imagination

If BIG BANG is inspiring you to create your own music at home, then this is the kit for you! Inspired by Nomad: Invented, one of our BIG BANG projects, inside this kit you’ll find instructions for three musical activities using objects you can find around the house.

Have fun listening out for animal sounds in the Nomad music, inventing your own instrument and, finally, writing your own music score using easy symbols and graphics which you can invent!

After you’ve warmed up with these activities, you’ll have even more fun when you come along to a BIG BANG bubble event.

This kit was created for you by musician Lisa Dowdall of Crash Ensemble.
