This little project came about as we had been given two xylophones and I decided no-one needed two xylophones. One was particularly ugly and plastic so I thought that one could be taken apart and made into something prettier.
Last summer my husband made the kids the best playhouse ever and I wanted to add some special items to it including an outdoor xylophone. We took all the metal pieces off the plastic and with the help of the little monsters, strung them onto some heavy duty plastic rope.
We then attached the new garden xylophone under the slide and balcony.
You can just see its bright colours peeping out from under the slide. The amazing playhouse was designed and built completely by my husband.
