Homemade Xylophone

You can make a xylophone at home!

You need a set of glasses or glass bottles that are all the same. Pour a different amount of water into each bottle and place them all in a row. You can also add different colors of food coloring into the water to make them each look unique.

Tap the sides of the glasses with a metal spoon to hear the different sounds they make. You can tune your xylophone by adding or removing water from the bottles. Then, create your own music. And most importantly... HAVE FUN!
