Kalimba - The Tuduce Family

Kalimba fun

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.
