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
- Wet piece of cloth/material
Cut out 2 small triangles and a mouth with black felt. Flip the cup upside down, peel and stick facial features to the cup.
Use the skewer to poke a hole at the top of the cup.
Attach the string to a paper clip by making 2 knots.
Slip the other end of the string in the hole, from the top of the cup.
Wet a little piece of cloth (we used a cut up wash cloth)
Hold the cup up from the top and glide the cup on the string for some really silly sounds!!!
