Jumbo Popsicle Sticks
Step 1: Cut small pieces of straw.
Step 2: Wrap a rubber band around a popsicle stick (long way), with the two small pieces of straw sitting on each end.
Step 3: Attach a second glue stick on top by wrapping two rubber bands on each end.
Step 4: Blow through the harmonica, see what sounds are made!
Makers can learn how to create sound and music using basic craft supplies. They will see, feel, and hear how the vibration of the rubber band creates sound. All while building a fun homemade toy for themselves.
Working with friends to create an instrument and a song together will bring out a group's creativity and teamwork.
