More Cowbell

I love that Bee loves trips to Home Depot!!!


Our assignment for Kindermusik was to make an instrument. We were pointed toward shakers, but Bee wanted a bell. She suggested a tin can, and her face lit up when I told her it would require a trip to Home Depot.

She picked out the eye bolt. She picked out the u-bolt (she said it was just the right size for her hand). I added a few nuts, some duct tape, and put it all together. When asked if she wanted to decorate it she just took it and began ringing away.

I could get used to having everything I make considered perfect. I am so lucky to have Bee. Yay!!!


(Oh, and if you don’t get the more cowbell thing, watch this…)

    oh, I love it when they are at that stage where everything you make is perfect! What a fun assignment.
    Around 4 1/2 nothing you make is right (because its not exactly what they saw in their head but couldn’t describe to you yet) and then it gets better again as they get a little older.

    That is awesome. Little kids are so fun. And cool.
