Homemade Kazoo

Kazoos may get a bad name in parenting circles, but this cute homemade version is far less, well, blaring than the ones you buy at the store, and your toddler will love marching about playing the “instrument”.

First, it’s time to decorate! Travis liked that he could color markers both on the outside and inside rim of the empty toilet paper tube we used.

Ooh, and markers fit through the tube, too – fun!

Once his decoration was complete, I punched a small hole with a pencil near one end of the tube. Cover the opposite end with wax paper, securing with masking tape.

To play the kazoo, cover the hole with your finger and hum. Travis loved watching me play it at first, and then took over!
