Musical instruments for children can be improvised and made at home and have been done so for centuries.
One only needs a tin cake drum and two sticks to create a drum if not a musical one!
There are many delightful colourful musical toys to delight children nowadays ready for purchase including keyboards, guitars, miniature pianos, children’s violins, shakers, tambourines, xylophones, mouth organs, drum set, shakers, saxophones.
Creating an interest in music is a gift that any child will thank the donor for in the years to come and worth the money or effort spent in obtaining it.
They will afford hours of fun and at the same time develop the creative powers of the little one.
