Step 1: Cut strips of cardboard for the xylophone keys.
Step 2: Paint the keys and allow them to dry.
Step 3: Punch two holes into each key with the single hole punch.
Step 4: Place paper fasteners into each of the holes.
Step 5: Glue the keys to the overturned bottom of an egg carton.

For color matching, set out a pattern of pom poms and have your little one follow the color pattern by tapping the same color pattern on the xylophone!
