xylophone

A wooden xylophone would be a fun addition to a covered spot in the backyard or front porch! Instructables user dirtydiaperchanger made one out of some rope and lumber, after admiring one at the local children’s museum. He shares his instructions, so you can make one too. I’ve also seen vertical hanging versions that have a smaller footprint.
