Today we started by playing with the cardboard tubes we’ve been gathering - foil tubes, cling wrap tubes, toilet paper tubes, postal tubes, paper towel tubes. Each varied in size and thickness so we lined them up and all of a sudden, what was previously packaging waste now turned into a musical instrument – a xylophone.

Step 1: Saw

For this project you will need a fruit box, paper tubes, elestic bands and Makedo Re-pins and Reclips. To begin, cut your paper tubes to descending lengths using the Makedo Safe-saw.
