EYFS outdoor provision - music area - stainless steel mixing bowls make a bell like noise - old xylophone dismantled and strung into a chain using cable ties and stretched taught using 2 hooks - old wind chimes suspended on string and hung in a box - wooden xylophone was once a bunkbed frame - cooling rack cable tied to the fence - silicone rubber spoons for beaters (not too noisy!) - and plastic ukulele because they all want to play mine!
