The goal of this project is to have fun with my two daughters: Ana and Ella. Ana is at this moment 5 1/2 years old, Ella is 3 1/2 years old. Why a kalimba? Well... why not?... Looks like fun!
List of materials
The list of materials will be updated as we evolve with the project. The materials listed here are for one kalimba.
- One wooden box. Off-the-shelf, to concentrate on making the musical instrument, not the box itself
- Water-soluble colors to paint the box
Day 1 - Painting the box
We launched into the project with an easy task: painting the box. I offered the kids several sets of water soluble paint. As expected, Ella choose the shades of blue. Ana choose a flower-painting set.
At the end of day 1 we have two painted boxes.
