Homemade Instruments for Kids
If you’ve ever seen a two-year old grab a stick and bang it on a trash can, you know that kids have an innate desire to make music – or at least some noise!
Rather than buy a band's worth of expensive instruments, you can find everything you need to make music right in your home. With some ingenuity and imagination, your child can transform a shoe box and some rubber bands into his own guitar. And the best part is, he can keep adding instruments to his repertoire! Drums, shakers, guitars; he can make them all and make a lot of music for everyone to enjoy.
What You Need:
- Rubber bands
- Construction paper
- Paper plates
- Dried Beans (or small shaped pasta)
- Oatmeal canister
