MAKING MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS
Bang! Clink! Ping! Ting!
These are the sounds made by gongs, triangles, and xylophones.
A Gong
Materials
• a lid of a large popcorn or potato-chip can    • a knife or a spoon for a mallet    • a nail    • a hammer    • a string
Ask your father to help you pound two nail holes into the rim of the lid. They should be a few inches apart.
Thread a string through the holes. Tie the ends of the string together. You can hold the gong by this string. See Picture.
Use a knife or a spoon as the mallet for striking the gong, You might want to wrap a strip of cloth around the hitting end of the mallet to make a softer tone when you hit the gong.
