Make a Tube Kazoo

1 07 2009

Do you love to make music? Great! You can make a musical instrument using materials found in your home.


Cardboard Tube (from a paper towel or toilet paper roll)

Wax paper

A rubber band

A sharp pencil




1) Punch a few small holes in the cardboard tube. Make the holes the same size and distance apart (like a flute).

2) Decorate your kazoo anyway you like.

3) Cover one end of the tube with wax paper.

4) Now, hum into the opposite end of the tube. If you cover the different holes in your kazoo, you will create different notes.

You have made your very own Tube Kazoo! Enjoy playing your new instrument!

Wonderful-looking kids. I can tell that they’re happy with their artwork. Thanks for posting the procedure in making this tube kazoo. Creating this kazoo can be a bonding moment between me and my daughter 🙂

Ultimately, we know every child is different, with different interests and learning styles, so having a variety of ideas is a great way to be prepared during the summer months. Involving children in the planning of ideas gives them an opportunity to express their individuality and creativity.
