I recently found an online tutorial which detailed how to build a kazoo from 2 popsicle sticks, a straw, and 3 rubber bands. I figured I had to give it a shot. I'll be honest... it doesn't sound very good... but it might be a fun project for kids.

Yeah, it's not much of a kazoo at all... but it is DIY.

Closer to a thumb reed caller we made as kids using a select blade of grass suspended between both thumbs and palms leaving a gap to blow across the blade making a similar sound.

Ha ha. The poor man's kazoo.

Believe the Comb and Rolling Paper are still the best option ! kale !!

Yeah Doug. It's honestly more like a harmonica than a kazoo but fun to build all the same.

It’s interesting that this one is played harmonica style. It is on the quiet side too. Another interesting video Kazoo King Kale! I’m looking forward to see what you come up with next.

Ha ha. Thanks for that t-belly. It's always fun to build stuff even if it doesn't come out great.

Lame? Yes of course it was but it was still entertaining!
