Rubber Band Musical Activity for Kids

Kids can form a rubber band band when they're done with this rubber band musical activity. Twang!

What You'll Need:

  • Large, empty margarine tub or metal coffee can
  • Stickers
  • Lots of rubber bands
  • Empty tissue box

Adults should help kids with this project. Decorate either the margarine tub or the metal coffee can with your favorite stickers. Then stretch five to seven rubber bands around the container so that they go over the open end.

Practice plucking! Notice how a rubber band makes a high-pitched sound when pulled tightly across the top? It sounds deeper when you loosen it.

How does the sound change when you use an empty tissue box instead? Try tuning your rubber bands by loosening and tightening them.
