Xylophone

  • Water Xylophone
    1. Use water glasses or quart jars to make a water xylophone.
    2. Fill each jar a little fuller than the last.
    3. Add food coloring to make each a color of the rainbow.
    4. Use different utensils (metal spoon, wooden spoon, plastic spoon, metal whisk) and see what different sounds it makes. We did this today with my 3-year-old and he loved it.
    5. TIP: Use a little bit of playdoh under each jar to keep them from sliding and wiggling around while you’re playing. Worked great!
