There’s always time for music in our house so I figured, let’s try and make some of our own Instruments! This is a very easy and inexpensive way for kids to get musical & have some fun! Thank you to Mini-eco for the inspiration! You can feel great that you’ve recycled and also made an instrument for less than $1 a piece!
You will need
Cans (we used soup & canned vegetable cans – washed & dried) *make sure there are no sharp edges!!
Pour some of the rice into the empty cans (a small handful will do the trick)
Cut the bottom end off the balloon
Step 3 & 4
Stretch the balloon over the lid of the can
Secure the balloon with a rubber band
The kids can shake the cans for ‘shaker’ sounds and beat the top for some wicked ‘bongo’ beats : ) We used skewers for our ‘drum sticks’, but you could use chopsticks or sticks from the garden!
