This guitar is a great musical instrument for kids to make.
All you need is a tissue box, rubber bands, straw and a paper towel roll and you're ready to make some music!

Level of Difficulty: Moderate

Here's what you'll need...

•Empty tissue box (or any box with a lid)
•Rubber bands, various sizes and colors
•Paper towel roll
•Paint and brush (optional)

Here's how to make it...

1.If you want to make your instrument a certain color, now's the time to paint your tissue box and towel roll. Once the paint is dry you're ready to move on...

2. You will need to cut slits into the end of your paper roll, about 1" long, and bend outwards (this is how you will attach your handle).

3. Wrap rubber bands around your tissue box, making sure that they lie over top of the opening in the box. Cut the straw to fit and slide it under your rubber bands. Secure the handle by sliding it underneath the rubber bands on the top of your box. If you find this is not secure enough, put some tape around the handle. You're ready to make some music!
