so excited to bring you this collection of AMAZING Outdoor Music Stations. We made our recycled outdoor music station last year and are still enjoying it. Taking music out into the fresh air adds a whole new level of fun and exploration to outdoor play. Plus, making a music station/area can be a great hands-on creative activity for kids.
In this post you’ll find
20 inspiring DIY projects sure to make your outdoor play space irresistible. From banging walls to wind chimes to one cool music man, these outdoor music stations are the best, most original ideas I’ve seen (and I spend a lot of time looking at and pinning ideas related to outdoor play).
Above, L-R, beginning at the top:
Apartment Friendly Music Station from Suzy Homeschooler. Perfect for small spaces, or for those with neighbours in close range.
Recycled Outdoor Music Station from My Nearest and Dearest. Just as fun to make as it’s been to play with!
Outdoor Music Man from Let’s Play Music. This guy is hands-down the most unique take on an outdoor music station that I’ve come across.
Washer Windchimes from One Time Through. Even toddlers can help make this.
Xylophones and Outdoor Music from Child Central Station. I’m a bit envious of this one!

Another feature of
Child Central Station’s space.
