TOM-TOM

Materials
a large, round cereal carton
string
something to punch holes
clothespins
Remove the lid from a round cereal carton. Just below the open end, punch a hole in the side of the carton. Punch another hole directly opposite the first. Run a string through the holes and tie the ends. You can now hang the box around your neck. Put the lid back on the carton.
If you wish, you can decorate the cereal box with poster paints. You can also tape the lid to the carton to keep it on.
Use clothespins for drumsticks.

A Xylophone
Materials
• empty pop bottles or water glasses
• a knife, a fork, or a spoon for a mallet
Collect several old pop bottles. It is best if they are all the same size and shape. Fill one bottle with water nearly to the top. Fill the second one halfway. Put just a little water in the third. Put other amounts of water in the other bottles.
Now hit each bottle gently with a piece of kitchen silver.
You can change the sound of each bottle by changing the amount of water in it. By experimenting with different amounts of water, you will be able to sound notes in tunc with a piano.
If you do not have pop bottles, ask your mother if she will let you use some water glasses.
