Project 28: Music wall

July 25, 2011

Music wall from Let the Children Play

This week, with unfinished projects all around me, I’m starting on something that I really need in my house: a music wall. I care for children in my home during the week. We generally stay in one room, but now that they are becoming mischievous toddlers I need to figure out how to creatively use my space. My hallway would be perfect for a music wall. I have grand ideas that go beyond hanging pots and pans on the wall, like you see above. If that was all I needed I’d just let them loose in my kitchen. This week I’m going to go back to the Scrap Exchange and see what great materials I can find to repurpose into a music activity wall for kids.

Curious about the rag rug? My aching fingers will post an update with a photo later today. It’s coming along!

  1. This is a great idea, Amber…I can’t wait to see what you come up with. The kids will have such a good time. 🙂

  2. Check out the Bart Hopkins books for ideas. Lot’s of useful information for building simple instruments.

    Dennis Havlena’s site also has a ton of info.
