Pie Tin Cymbals

Pie Tin Cymbals

My kids (ages 5 and 2) love making music by banging on pots and pans. So making instruments out of pie tins was right up their alley! As soon as we made a set, they pulled out a shaker and marched around the house in a mini-sized marching band. It was so cute I had to grab the video camera!

How We Did It

The kids and I sang up little made-up songs to get us into the music-making spirit.

My five-year-old helped me cut some tape and attached the chopsticks right to the back of each pie tin. She loves all the fancy duct tape they have in the art store now.

My two-year-old was more about the glue and pom-poms. We got a system down: One would add glue and the other would stick a pom-pom.

We had to wait for the glue to dry. (To avoid this, just use stickers to decorate.)

Once the instruments were dry, it was time to march, sing, dance, and make sweet music with our homemade cymbals.
