Hello! It’s finally summer vacation!
Today I would like to show you some recommended DIY musical instruments! They are also good for kids’ summer homework and at-home projects. Please check it out!
This is a ukulele kit from SUZUKI. All you need is a Phillips screwdriver and scissors! Enjoy building your own ukulele. Paint, draw pictures, or put stickers on it as you like. If you are not very artistic, simply paint it brown.
For example, the finest ukulele uses a type of wood called “Hawaiian Koa”, so it may be fun to imitate it!
This ukulele is made of Hawaiian koa.
This kalimba kit is also from SUZUKI. The kalimba is also called a thumb piano, and kalimba music YouTube videos are also popular. You only need to use the included hexagon wrench for assembly. The sound of the kalimba is so gentle and soothing.
Watch this skillful kalimba playing!

This is a carton cajon from SELA CAJONS. It is made of cardboard. It’s so easy to assemble. Just paint on the cardboard area however you like! It’s fun that the sound changes depending on the type of paint. You can even paint it with spray paint!
The carton cajon sounds like this! (1:20-) This instrument has a great tone!
This is the SUZUKI DIY violin kit. Since the body has already been assembled, you can easily make a real violin all by yourself! You will feel like you’re Seiji Amasawa in the animated film, Whisper of the Heart from Studio Ghibli! Lol.
After you make it, you can try to play “Take Me Home, Country Roads”!
What do you think? I think they’re all easy to build and the most work you will have to do is paint them. Don’t forget to try out some music pieces with the instruments you just built!
