Day 239: Make Your Own Kazoo

Take an empty paper towel roll and put a piece of waxed paper over one end of the roll securing it with a rubber band. Poke 2 or 3 small holes into the waxed paper. Then, hum into the open end of the “kazoo” to produce a musical sound. It may be hard for little kids to understand the concept of humming into the instrument, so be sure to demonstrate what you mean.

Note: Kazoos are really inexpensive and can be found at most toy stores and even party supply shops. In general, metal kazoos make clearer, louder sounds than the plastic variety. Kazoos are easily transportable and great to take along in the car. You can play along with whatever song is on the radio or CD player.
