We just included the Montessori Bell sets in the new edition of our Primary Year One curriculum with some trepidation. The bells are so expensive! And they are not nearly as important as a lot of other pieces of equipment.
Searching for good alternatives... a pair of xylophones would work well. And then this very neat YouTube Homemade Xylophone jumped out at me.
So, for everyone who is looking at the bell writeup in our albums, you can use the xylophone sets in lieu of the bells.
