Pan Pipes Reconfigured

The boys received these charming musical pipes from the travels of Grandma and Granddad, originating from Peru, I believe. That's Buster's set above, not entirely intact, but you get the idea.

Q-ster played with his enough that the strings started coming loose, so he unraveled it completely and used some athletic tape to make a new instrument that matched the illustrations in his Greek mythology book.  The picture? Pan and the satyrs cavorting with their pipes.

The multi-colored string that originally wove the pipes together has now become the favored device for Cat's Cradle. Waste not, want not!

Love how kids reuse and recycle!
