music 2So… as may know, we have been making “craft videos” with other crafty blogs this past few weeks and thought a great craft for a video – would be MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS – afterall, not only do you get to see them that way, but HEAR them too. PERFECT. So we share with you today 10 musical instrument crafts to inspire you to get crafty and musical in one. There are a couple of extra crafts linked below that are not in the video, but were supposed to be, so I thought I would share them anyway!









10 Musical Craft Ideas

(sorry the beginning seems to have “cut short” automatically)

And here the links in chronological order:

1) Egg Maracas and Egg Shakers - nifty thrifty musical craft. Make it from bits and pieces from around the home!

2) A quack quack whistle – super simple but fun craft by Playful learners, will get the kids giggling for sure!

3) Kids Chaos shares their simple bottle top clacker/ castanets  I LOVE these and they are SO on our to do list! A perfect addition to our Bottle Top Craft Hangout!

4) Blue Bear Wood shares their fun bottle instrument – it is finally tuned and we even hear a rendition of Twinkle Twinkle little star in the video!

5) Craftulate has a fun and super simple Paper Plate Tambourine. Love it. Great how you can make it “easier or trickier” to make (aka noisier too!) depending on the age group.

6) Crystal had some technical issues, but we got to briefly see her wristband jingle bells, and of course you can read all about them on her blog post too!

7) Love Me and My Shadow’s “Blue bell” Fairy Wand! Perfect for this time of year and so whimsical.

8) Finally (on the video), I share our new Guitar craft – we had great fun making and the kids loved colouring it afterwards!

9) Many moons ago, we also made some Tin Drums – you can imagine what these sound like – nice and noise!

10) Finally, we have the Domestic Goddesque, who was supposed be joining us at the hangout, but her little darlings wouldn’t go to sleep in time … so please hop over to look at her Chinese Drums!

    Love these ideas! I think kids would appreciate music more if they also get to make an instrument. And this might lead them to find a real instrument and learn it.

    This was such a great hangout. Loved the jamming session at the end. x

    This is fantastic! The video demonstrations make doing these activities so much easier than using written instructions. And a number of these could be made with toddlers. Thanks and I hope you keep up the videos! You make a great team!
