Making Homemade Instruments for Kids

Tips 4: Making your own homemade instruments for kids. 

Making homemade instruments is a great way for the whole family to come together.  This week I will teach you how to make homemade guitars.  All you need is a shoebox and different size rubber bands.  I always save shoeboxes, because there is an unlimited amount of things you can do with them.

Find any size shoe box (or other small cardboard box) and wrap about 6 rubber bands around it width wise.  We used some thick rubber bands and skinny ones to make different sounds. 

We only spent $0.67 on this activity because we didn't have enough rubber bands at home.  But if you have rubber bands available this activity is FREE.  Hint:  Stick some white paper around the shoebox and have your kids color and decorate their guitars first.  We ended up making 3 guitars and played songs as a family.  It was so much fun... all of us were laughing and having a good time!
