I made "fart" sounds from my armpit with my hand for my little dude. It was to the tune of Rudoph the Red Nose Reindeer. SHESH!! The things I do to make a 4 year old happy! ;)

When I thump on my dogs chest it sounds like a drum, so I try and make music between the cat snoring and thumping the dog.
I'm sure I am not the only one, but there are a couple of sweet spots on my steering wheel and a rattle that my stick shift makes that I beat on while driving that tends to drive my lady crazy!
Straws pinched at different positions make some amazing sounds – many of which probably attract dogs. I like to test out different straws in restaurants which prompts my wife to take all straws away from me.
Snapple bottle caps make a really cool sounds when you click them. While in high school I joked with my friends who had a band that they should let me play the Snapple tops as a member of the band. They actually let me click them in one of their songs. It was very random, but cool.
We used rubber bands and a stick, so much fun!!!
When someone forgets the drumsticks for Rock Band, plastic serving spoons work just as well! Gotta see Stomp, though, if you haven't.
One of my favorite memories of my dad is how he used to use the dash board and steering wheel of the car as his drum set. I totally remember being little and hearing the sound of his wedding ring tapping the steering wheel as he drummed away to Jimi Hendrix. Now, whenever I accidentally hit the steering wheel with my wedding ring I am instantly taken back to those special days with my dad :)
I like to use the zipper on my hoodie. Makes really cool music :)
Dry spaghetti noodles sound really soft and cool and textured when you shake them, or roll them around in your hands against each other!
I have a guitar pedal that loops sounds that I either play into my guitar or sing into a microphone. I start to make different sounds and build up sounds to a full drum beat before I start playing guitar along side it. I start by hitting the body of my guitar for a real deep bass drum sound. Then I rub my fingernails across the body and it makes a little scratching sound to act like a hi-hat would. If I am playing in front of people, I try to get themt o clap on beat, then spin the microphone around and loop in the audience's clap so they are making music with me. Once there is a drum beat established, I set the pedal to stop recording and just to play the newly created beat on loop, then I start playing accoustic guitar and singing with it.
when my kids were young, we would gather all sorts of things, invite their friends and make beautiful (ha!) music!! oatmeal containers and coffee cans with rubberbands strung across, pots and pans of course, castinets (sp) made from soda caps nailed to some wood, various size bottles to blow into, jars set up with water to clank on, some with dried beans and rice to shake, garbage can drums, and cymbals from their lids, and all the sounds we could make with our voices..the kids loved it and so did i! :)
