Make your own musical instruments

 
Kids love creating their own music from an early age! Make your own musical instruments from things you have at home.
Kids love creating their own music from an early age! Make your own musical instruments from things you have at home.

Why not start off by making the following:
 

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.

 
Make a few instruments and enjoy forming a band and singing songs with the children.
