* Windmill school used old pots and pans bought at a car boot sale to make instruments. Look for non-coated metal pans as these are easier to paint, and use a paint which is suitable for metal surfaces, such as multicrom translucent. Thread a thin rope through the handles to attach them to the washing line.
* Loddon school made a variety of instruments such as wind chimes, tambourines, shakers and rattles. To make a tambourine, superglue two plastic plant pot trays face together, decorate with acrylic or plastic paints and then drill 11 holes through the outer rim with a very fine drill bit. Thread a short length of galvanised wire through 10 of the holes, attaching a galvanised sleigh bell and securing tightly. Thread a longer piece of wire through the final hole to hang the tambourine up.
* To make a rattle, take four recycled tin cans, preferably of different sizes, and remove any sharp edges with a metal file (cover with duck tape or clay for extra protection). Drill a small hole in the bottom of each can, big enough to thread a piece of wire through. Decorate the cans with metal paints. Once dry, thread the cans on to a long piece of wire, using beads and washers to stop them sliding up and down.
* To make a shaker, fill a piece of strong plastic tube with shells, buttons or beads. Superglue the stoppers (plastic stoppers from a poster tube are best) to each end and decorate the tubes. Screw a small eyelet through the end of each tube and superglue around the hole. Once dry, thread galvanised wire through the eyelets and attach to the washing line.
* To make a wind chime, take six lengths of copper piping. Drill a series of holes along the length of each piece of pipe, passing through both sides. Attach sleigh bells to each piece of piping and then wire them together.
* Finally, string the wooden spoons up to use as beaters.
