Melody Maker: There's music hiding in your recycling bin! Tap empty glass bottles with a stick (or our homemade mallet) until you find six that produce a nice sound. Lay the bottles on a piece of thick foam rubber, leaving an inch of space between them. Trace the outline of each bottle on the foam, then use scissors to cut a furrow in the middle of each outline. Nestle the bottles in the furrows. Play them by tapping them with a mallet.
