Kid Science: Sound Vibrations Science

At its most simple, the science of sound is about how air moves, causing parts of your ear to vibrate. It’s a tricky concept to explain to kids, but this fun instrument-building experiment lays the groundwork for helping children understand the concept as they get older. Watch how to make your own in our latest kid science video:


Make a Craft Stick Kazoo

You will need:

Tape, construction paper, 1 large and 2 small rubber bands, craft sticks and scissors.

Wrap a strip of construction paper around a craft stick to get the right length – you’ll want it to be long enough to wrap around four times.
