Project of the Week: Homemade Xylophone

Last week Big Sis had a President report and a President to decorate.  This week she has a musical instrument to make and a Valentines Day Box to turn in.  We were headed to Grandpa and Grandma's house.  Daddy is way to busy with school and work right now so I recruited Grandpa to help us with a homemade xylophone! I knew this would be right up his alley!  I remembered back to the days of the wooden sphere and cheese ball that looked like a fish that had to be made for one of my college classes as well as the numerous projects! So, I knew Grandpa would know just what to do!

First, we had to go get the materials!

 Then, it was time to gather up everything....Daddy took a break from his school work to inspect and make sure Grandpa was doing it right!
 Big Sis had to line up all of the pipes to make sure the notes were all in order!

 Next, she put the beads on the rubber bands!

 The pipes were added between the beads and PVC pipe!  She is itching to try it out!
 All done!  Big Sis practiced Twinkle Twinkle, Mary Had a Little Lamb, ABC song, Doe a Deer from The Sound of Music and Jesus Loves Me!  She was a quick learner!  
Thanks  A Ton Grandpa!  It is perfect!
What a great Memory Maker!
