Our theme for the month of August is sound and music. We have been encouraging visitors to create musical instruments, but the staff has been having a blast creating some instruments of our own.
A family came in a couple of days ago and wanted to try and make a pair of harps. I have never made a harp before, so it was a little challenging to figure this project out. It can sometimes be difficult to make something for the first time, but it can also be fun and informative! There are always problems to solve and mistakes to make, but that is the whole point of “making” something.
Sound is always a fun phenomenon to explore. And instruments are always fun to make.
