This idea was spawned from Amanda Soule Blake's first book, ( I think that is where I saw this idea) and I have been trying to get to it for some time.
Finally this week the girls and I hit the local thrift store and scavenged the yard for anything noisy to hang.
The outcome is a splendid gathering of odd shaped tins and metals hung from string or wire.
Each making its own unique sound.
Filling each with rocks, sand or water add more interesting noises for endless fun.
All the kids migrate to this contraption and seem to get the idea instantly as they pick up a metal curtain rod that is used as the hit stick and start clanging away.
E has a better time trying to figure out how to create the loudest noise possible, while K is trying to find the right pitches to create an actual song.
Till then I hope my neighbours are OK with the chaotic sound from their kooky neighbours back yard.
In case you noticed E is wearing K's shoes for a true clown foot effect, she's not a snowshoe rabbit.
