If you’re happy and you know it shake your tin! Yee haa! The annual Southern Fried festival is just around the corner and it’s got me in a musical mood, so this month I’m all about making homemade instruments.
This craft is super easy to make and very satisfying. It’s a two-in-one musical instrument as well as a craft activity. I mean… I’m in heaven! I’ll be making these during St Johns Shopping Centre’s FREE Summer Kid’s Workshops on Thursday 12th July from 11am – 3pm so we can all join in with the beat!
You will need;
Tin | Scissors | Paper |Glue | Stickers | Balloon | Rice
Step 1: (Get an adult to help you with this) Put thick tape around the edge of the tin to avoid cutting yourself.
Step 2: Put your rice in the tin.
Step 3: Cut your balloon, Place balloon over the opened side of the tin. Place tape around it to secure.
Step 4: Decorate your tin in any way you like. I put paper around mine and added gems.
Step 5: Now you have your completed tin, give it a shake or tap the balloon and hear the sounds and different beats you can make!
Do remember to send us in any finished pieces or if you make a funky wee tune send it in!

Does anyone else remember how it felt to first become a parent? Sometimes it takes a straight talking parent to lift the- not so talked about - lid!
