With a cool kazoo, kids can make music without years of practice. All they need for this easy musical activity are the kazoo they make themselves and a good song to hum. Then it's on to buzzing along with songs on the radio, or playing in time to the music while marching around the room.
What You'll Need:
- Paper towel tube
- Waxed paper
- Rubber band
Step 1: Decorate the paper towel tube with markers.
Step 2: Wrap a piece of waxed paper over one end of the tube.
Step 3: Secure the waxed paper with a rubber band.
Step 4: Carefully cut two holes in the tube, as shown in the illustration.
Step 5: Play the kazoo by humming your favorite song into the open end of the tube. For other interesting sounds, make more kazoos with tubes of different diameters, thicknesses, and lengths.
