Different lengths of branches for a wooden xylophone hanging below the bridge over the pond so the ducks could play it? Shells stung between the trees as on a washing line to catch the wind and whistle?
Bread/Biscuits Focus on health and safety. Children to design a poster. Draw someone in the kitchen breaking all the rules, e.g. hair hanging down, unwashed hands, uncovered wounds and a cat sat at the far end of the chopping board watching.
