Make your own musical instruments


Have a go at making small individual instruments or if you have room, why not create a musical wall in the garden!
 

Triangle

  • Tie a string around the top of a wire coat hanger and bend the hook closed. Hold onto a string and hit the hanger with a metal spoon.
 

Guitar

  • Wrap rubber bands around a small sturdy topless box. Play by strumming your fingers across the rubber band.
 

Wrist bells

  • String 3 or 4 bells onto a pipe cleaner. Twist the ends together to form a bracelet.
 

Finger Cymbals

  • Punch 2 holes into identical small jar lids. Thread a pipe cleaner through the holes and twist to make finger handles. Put one onto each pointer finger and bang the lids together.
 

Drum

  • Get out a cooking pot and beat the bottom of it with a wooden spoon.
 

Outdoor musical wall

  • Cre­ate an outdoor musical wall using kitchen uten­sils and anything noisy you have to hand! Just fix the utensils to the fence or an old pallet and let the fun begin. It’s a great way for kids to have fun and learn different sounds.


Form a band

  • Make a few of the instruments above and get your kids to form their own band and play along to their favourite nursery rhymes..
