A kazoo is a simple musical instrument that has a thin covering that vibrates and adds a buzzing sound when the player sings or hums into the pipe. A good project for the school holidays and something your kids can make themselves!


  • 1 toilet roll
  • 1 small piece waxed paper
  • 1 elastic band
  • textas, scissors


  1. Decorate the toilet roll with textas.
  2. Cut out a small piece of wax paper, and secure to the end of the roll with an elastic band.
  3. Done!

  • So easy and the kids will love it!


  • Ahahahahahaha so many childhood memories flooding back after seeing this. Another way to make the kazoo is with a hair comb


  • oh wow. i didn’t know this could be so easily done. love it. thanks for sharing this.


  • Very easy and enjoyable. A great easy project for the kids.


  • Very cute. I know my toddler will enjoy this.


  • How cute it’s a very cool idea thanks for sharing


  • I remember making these when I was a kid. I think my kids might have made them at school at some stage


  • The kids would have fun colouring in the Kazoo


  • Such a lovely idea. Encouraging children to play music when they are young will give them a life long love and hopefully lead them to want to play instruments when they are older. Thanks.


  • Thanks for sharing such a great project. Kids love music and even more if they made the instrument for themselves. Great thinking.


  • An excellent school holiday project yes, thanks.


  • Perfect little mummy and me activity for me and mr 2. Isn’t too complex and will keep him entertained foR hours.


  • Lovely little project just in time for the school holidays. Didn’t we use to make this with hair combs and the paper years ago?


  • i’m sure i’ll regret this (small house, only floorboards, stuck inside for winter :p ) but we will definitely give it a go. We’re always looking for quick, fun homemade activities – and who doesn’t have a trillion cardboard rolls at their house !!! :)


  • Ohh fun
