Lucas' Violin

Lucas loves anything music! He can recognize songs within the first two seconds of them playing.  Without being told, he can also pick out the loudest instrument (whether it's a steel guitar, a piano, or really loud drums) and "air play" it.  We try to accommodate his love of music by supplying toy replicas.  One instrument he did not have (but pretended with drum sticks, silverware, coat hangers... anything, really) was a violin.  He's fascinated by the violins and pianos at church.  I decided to try making him a violin out of a recently emptied diaper box, hot glue, jewelry wire and elastic string, and a dowel rod.  I wish I had taken pictures as I made it, but the end product is pretty impressive, if I do say so myself :).
I love how it looks! Too bad (for him) that it doesn't make any sound :)

(Cropped from an iPhone video) He instantly knew how to hold it! I didn't have to show him a thing!
