::: make it irresistible – build a music frame

Thanks to some incredibly inspirational and generous bloggers we have added some wonderful learning experiences into our kindergarten program from which our children benefit immensely!

Our latest addition is a music frame …

for which the inspiration has come from people like JennyKitten Muffin, and Tom.

With the simple addition to an old climbing frame of assorted pots and pans …

straight out of the sand pit …

and a couple of wooden sticks …

we have created a fun, interesting, noise generating play space.

Of course not every one appreciates the noise songs and music being created at the music frame …

but we knew it wouldn’t be too long …

before she came to the party!

    I love how we keep topping each other. I think we’re going to make one way up high on a wall where the kids can only make the sounds by kicking balls up there!

    You are having entirely too much fun with the new camera, Donna!

    I’d really like to see that Tom. We have a bunch of “Aussie Rules” football loving children who would LOVE a challenge like that! 🙂 🙂

    Hey guys, this looks great. I was thinking that the thing our banging post lacked was movement, and from the look of your photos your kids were really enjoying that as well. Oh, and I think I can hear the noise from here!
