Outdoor Music Wall

We all LOVE music at school and we all LOVE playing musical instruments. We have been busy making an outdoor music wall. 

Each child painted their own wooden spoon to use as a drumstick on the new music wall.

We filled plastic bottles and containers with rice, shells and pasta and attached the containers to the wall along with all of our other new musical instruments.

We let the children choose whatever they wanted to hang on the music wall and choose the positions of the various components.

The children selected a variety of pots, pans, containers, lids, plastic bottles, cups and sandpit toys to hang on our music wall.

 It has been a wonderful addition to our outdoor area as it has provided hours of learning and fun for all of the children. I LOVE an activity that is made using recycled materials and only takes a short while to set up. The children have had a ball singing and playing music and experimenting with all of the different sounds each object made. 

You could make this in your garden or playground.
