"There is nothing – absolutely nothing – which you can do indoors that you can’t do outdoors. There are many learning experiences that can only happen outside.
And some things just work better outdoors, and music for young children is one of them."
- Alec Duncan

3. A Music Wall
From Endeavour Learning Centre:
4. A Music Frame

5. Wind Chimes

The beauty of these ideas is that they can be put together cheaply - a lot of the materials are probably things you already have lying around - and that the children can be a part of the creation process.
