Of course there are many more musical crafts that involve more than just humming. With a simple paper towel tube you can create a flute, horn or even a handle for a guitar. The key to making a musical instrument craft is to be creative in what you come up with and to consider how the sound of the craft correlates to the sounds that you would hear in actual music.
Making a musical instrument craft does not have to be an elaborate or complicated undertaking. Musical instruments can be created from materials that you likely already have in your own home. For the environmentally conscious, recycling old things into new things is at the heart of craft making. Why not give that toilet paper tube a new life as a musical instrument before throwing it away with the garbage. Additionally, you save money when you make crafts because the parts needed are often already in your home. Thinks like string, rubber bands, boxes, glue, and markers are often all that you need to make dozens of different craft creations.
Making crafts as a family has its benefits in that parents are given the opportunity to spend more time with children and to learn more about the distinct personalities that each of those children have. Additionally, the child benefits from the one-on-one attention that is received and we all want to be close to our children and understand the benefits that exist with strong family ties. Many parents shy away from craft making activities because they themselves do not feel creative or perhaps they do not enjoy making things with their hands. While there is nothing wrong with these assumptions, it must be understood that the vast majority of crafts out there are designed for beginners and with hesitant crafters in mind. There is also no need to be a musician in order to make a musical craft, if you have a voice and a little creativity you can make enough musical instrument crafts for a whole band.
