Activity: DIY Xylophone

Xylophones are typically made of wood, but you don’t need woodworking skills to create one at home.

Follow the steps below to create your own DIY xylophone!

  • Step 1: Gather your materials. In place of wood, you can use the paper tubes that come inside of paper towel rolls or wrapping paper! You’ll also need four rubber bands.
  • Step 2: Cut the tubes. You should end up with five tubes, each about an inch smaller than the next. The exact size will vary depending on what type of tubes you are using and how many you have. (For example, you could have one each of three-inch, four-inch, five-inch, six-inch, and seven-inch tubes.)
  • Step 3: Use rubber bands to attach the tubes. Twist each rubber band into an “8” shape and use them to connect two tubes. The tubes should go in size order — largest to smallest.

With that, you have a homemade xylophone — easy! You can add decoration by coloring the paper tubes or adding accents like yarn and stickers.

In place of a mallet, you can use any stick-shaped object, from pens to chopsticks.
