Spooky Sounding Lanterns

These were so easy to make and the resulting sound is really loud!!!
The kids loved playing around with the sound variations. We each got a chance to pull on our string while other children guessed what it sounded like. We made sounds of witches, ghosts, squeaky doors and even chickens!!!!!

You will need:

  • Plastic cup
  • Black Adhesive felt (You can do this with construction paper and glue instead)
  • Skewer or nail to poke a hole
  • Cotton string or yarn (will not work with nylon string)
  • Paper clip
  • Scissors
  • Wet piece of cloth/material

Instructions:

Cut out 2 small triangles  and a mouth with black felt. Flip the cup upside down, peel and stick facial features to the cup.
