Childs Play Music shares this article on creating musical instruments with scrap metal. How perfect would these be for yard play? Not only do they resemble up-cycled or reclaimed art they are practical and imaginative. I don’t think I would install one too close to my back door as I have an intolerance to loud noises but if your child can bang out a tune then you have it made.
Inspired by the book “Musical Instrument Design” (See Sharp Press; 1996, US$18.95).
