Kazoos Are For Any Age

I was bowled over and nearly died with delight when I found these simple instructions for making kazoos out of toilet paper rolls back in January. I knew that The Beau was going to have a clutter coronary ( yup, I coined that phrase!) soon if I didn’t make something out of the ever-growing tower I had been saving on the back of our toilet tank.

I knew they would come in handy, I just had to hold out for the perfect test of craftiness. So I gathered them up and into the craft cave I went!

I really wanted to try out one of these cutouts,

but I don’t have an X-acto or patience close to sharp enough for that.

When this project fell into my Google Reader, I felt like throwing a party just to use them. Then I remembered, my very special cousin is turning the BIG 2-1 in March, and what a perfect reason to make something noisy like a kazoo!

A super easy DIY. Paint tp roll, cut a small piece of wax paper, rubber band them to the top. Slit some tiny holes in the top and you’re ready to hum and kazoo to your heart’s content! So I painted them all in fun designs. Of course, the lady of the hour had to have a special, blinged out one:

Then I packed them all up with some baked goodies and more goofy treats, and brought them to her.

I hope they were a hit!

  1. Such a neat idea:) I can totally see you hoarding toilet paper tubes on the toilet tank! Did they fall down when you flushed the toilet? I can see him with fist in air yelling, “Jessica!”:)

  2. Your post made me laugh out loud!! I remember (vaguely) making kazoos in preschool or something this same way!! but we didn’t bother to make them as adorable as yours…

    1. Haha I’m glad you guys enjoyed it! I am always trying to figure out ways to use tp rolls because I absolutely hate throwing them away, but I don’t want to become a hoarder with walls made more of tp rolls than stucco!
