Over the holidays, we did some babysitting. While iPads and cartoons were readily available, we believe that kids should not spend all of their time in front of screens, no matter how easy it makes babysitting/parenting. Here are some fun instruments that you can easily make yourself to keep kids entertained for hours.
While I did not technically make these, they were found at my aunt & uncles house, they seemed preeeeety easy to make. All you need is empty cans (like coffee cans or from canned veggies/soup) & duct tape. The steps are pretty simple too. Duct tape the cans together as shown below. If you have a drum stick, great! If not, find a stick from outside or just use your hands/fingernails. These are a big hit for any little munchkin!
Over at LHL I posted about these fun/loud instruments. Check it out!
