Music makes us smarter – it’s true! This is because when you play a musical instrument your brain works harder to focus on the task at hand, training it to become better and stronger! So instead of sitting around the house this school holiday, keep the kids’ minds active by having them make their very own musical instruments using craft materials from PNA. Get those young minds working and hands crafting!

Noise makers
