A super quick DIY: Make a water xylophone

DIY water xylophone

With all this rain going on here in the UK, we’ve been spending lots of time indoors.  While I love watching the rain when I’m inside and dry, I can’t say that Anya feels the same.  She is restless.  So we’ve been having a few play dates, more tv than we should 😉 and lots of DIY and crafting time.  Of all the stuff we’ve made, Anya has most enjoyed making this DIY water xylophone that she spotted on Cbeebies.

It’s such an easy and pretty DIY that I thought I would share it here.  Simply let your kids fill 6-8 plastic or glass bottles with different amounts of water.  Mix in some paint, in the colours of your choice, and your musical instrument is ready.  Tap with a spoon or similar to explore the different musical sounds.  Anya made her water xylophone in a pastel palette which I thought was so pretty!

The mini milk bottles we used are from the gorgeous Pretty Little Party Shop.
