Today, I wish to share with you an easy recycle toy I made for my boy. I seldom mention about my boy in my blog. Well, he is bigger now and getting very active and energetic than before. He seems to love music, as he likes to bang or hit things in the house, assuming all the things are his 'music instruments', and make loud noises.
Long story short, I made this simply because I have too many empty milk cans in my recycle bin. You can actually use the empty milk can just the way it is. They are beautiful music instruments in the eyes of children. I made this milk can drum a night before and surprised my boy in the morning. It is a delight to see the sheer joy in the face of my boy. His smile motivates me to be a better mum.
