How we did it:

Materials List

  1. toilet paper tubes (toilet paper or paper towel tubes)
  2. wax paper (5"x5")
  3. rubber bands
  4. markers
  5. crayons
  6. stickers
  7. pen
  1. Decorate your paper towel tube with markers, crayons, or stickers.

  2. Cover one end of the tube with wax paper. Pull tight and secure with a rubber band. Using a pen or pencil, poke a small hole in the wax paper.

  3. Poke a small hole in the middle of the tube with a pen or pencil.

  4. Let the music begin! Experiment with what makes the best sound. Cover the hole in the middle with your finger or cover the end for a different sound. For the most authentic kazoo sound, HUM INTO THE END WITHOUT THE WAX PAPER and keep the wax paper at the bottom end!
