Name A Musical Instrument After Yourself Day

At Home Family Fun:

  • Get out some beans, old plastic Easter eggs, toilet paper tubes, rubber bands, oatmeal containers and anything else you can think of and start making creative musical instruments. Then name them after yourself.
  • Watch This Is Minnesota Orchestra on TPT tonight at 8pm

Outing Idea:

Visit a park like Town Green Park in Maple Grove or Jackson Square Park in Minneapolis, where you can test out some playground instruments for ideas.
