Make Musical Instruments at the BeNETTAfit

Among the many fun activities at the BeNETTAfit this Saturday, November 12, there will be a craft table (run by yours truly of Tmuffin) where we will be making musical instruments so our kids can jam with the bands. (Who are we kidding? We're going to be jamming, too!)

Here's a little sneak preview of the homemade musical instruments we'll be making from repurposed materials:

Part of the beauty of these crafts is that they will be made from repurposed, recycled materials.
We need the following materials for our homemade musical instruments:
  • Tin cans (coffee cans, vegetable cans, juice cans, etc)
  • Rubber bands
  • Old sweaters/old T-shirts
  • Paper towel, toilet paper, or wrapping paper tubes
  • Paper plates
  • Wax paper
  • Balloons
  • Boxes of rice or bags of dried beans (for the shakers/rattles)
In order to have enough for everybody, we need your help! If you have any of the above materials lying around, bring them by Green Baby Diaper Service by Friday, November 11, or bring them with you to the BeNETTAfit!
