These totally brought me back to being a kid again!  What kid doesn’t like a kazoo??  And what mom actually does like their kids to have a kazoo?  Ok, just kidding.  My house is already loud so I figure, what the heck, they’re making music. 😉  So in this post I teach you how to make a kazoo with supplies you have around the house.  Ready?  It literally takes just a couple of seconds.

These are so easy to make.

Supplies needed to make a kazoo:

Toilet Paper rolls

paint or markers (optional, but fun!)

Wax paper

Rubber bands

I let my kids paint and decorate their toilet paper roll.How to make a Kazoo from TheJoysofBoys.com

(And for the record, do not leave a 4-year-old unattended with paint, even for a quick minute and even when you think that since he just turned 4 that his 3-year-old tricks are now in the past.  Unless of course you are really wanting a Van Gogh on your kitchen floor.  Which is what I got when I came back. He had dropped his paints and decided, “What the heck, it’s already spilled, let’s make a masterpiece!”  I wish I had taken a picture now but in the moment I really just wanted it to come off my kitchen floor.)

Then just cut a square of wax paper and wrap it over the end of the tp roll and secure with a rubber band.How to make a Kazoo from TheJoysofBoys.com

Then let your kids hum or sing into them and make music to their heart’s content or until your ears can’t take it anymore.  When that time comes just send them outside to play for the neighbors.  After all, that’s what summertime is for right?

    Thanks so much for the instructions! I vaguely remembered these from childhood. My daughter wants a band themed second birthday, so it looks like I’ll be making a bunch of these for all of her little pals. (I’m thinking of using stickers to decorate though…I’ve been there with the paint on the floor thing…😉)

      What a fun idea for a party and stickers are a great idea!! Or you could even wrap paper around them and tape it. Yeah, the paint was a mess, but he had lots of fun. 😉
