D-I-Y Guitar School Project (Recycle, Reuse, Create)

 

diy guitar

Our boy had this project from school, his homework is to make a do-it-yourself musical instrument. The school is teaching the kids to create something using recyclable materials.  They formed a small music group in their class and he was assigned to be the guitar player, all their instruments are from recycled materials, best way to teach the kids the importance of recycling.

With the help of hubby, they made this DIY guitar using ice cream tub, surplus wood from the home construction before and excess strings from his fishing gears. Just a bit of tuning here and there, and voila! he has a guitar, hubby was thinking of a 12 string bass, but can’t figure out how, lol.  #Recycle #Reuse #Create

And now even if their project is already finished, he kept his guitar and practiced playing during his free time. I removed the laptop from his room and his cellphone during weekends, that’s why he has more ‘bored time’ (lol) after doing house chores and playing outside, he also do some drawings, things he never did due to being so preoccupied with gadgets. Best idea to squeeze out his creativity, I hope. 🙂
