What is a song you already love? Do a Google search for the track online. We’re going to make an instrument for it.

  1. The instrument must reflect a unique sound from a song you love.

  2. Bonus points for using existing objects in your house like cardboard boxes, a toaster or a broome to make your instrument.

  3. To complete the challenge take a video of you playing your favorite song with the instrument and explaining how you made it. The video should that last more than 30 seconds

Have fun!
