After you get all your school work completed, celebrate by making a “Paper Tube Kazoo” with #kaleideumathome!
Materials needed: paper tube (paper towel or toilet paper roll,) markers/crayons/stickers, wax paper, rubber band or tape, toothpick or skewer
- Decorate the outside empty paper tube (paper towel roll or even toilet paper roll!) with markers, crayons, stickers, anything you have on hand.
- Ask a grownup to help you carefully poke three holes in the side of your tube, using a toothpick or a skewer (a skewer is a thin metal or wood stick used to hold pieces of food together when cooking.) Try to keep the holes evenly spaced apart, about the distance of your fingers.
- Get a small piece of wax paper, enough to cover the open end of your tube (you may want to cut the wax paper into a square and get rid of the excess, but you don’t need to.) Tightly cover one end of your tube with the wax paper and keep in place using a rubber band or by taping down the wax paper to the roll.
- Blow into the open end of the tube and use your fingers to cover the holes you made- what silly sounds can you make?
