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.
Trim it to the perfect length, refold and tape.
Now layer on the other craft stick with the two smaller rubber bands.
Kazoo time! Kids will get a kick out of how the vibrations tickle as they play.
