Picture of Make a Rainy Day Tissue Box Guitar! - Great for Kids
I'm going to show you how to make a guitar with your kids out of a tissue box, paper towel roll and some rubber bands! My mom and I used to make these all the time when I was little - They're really fun!

Step 1: Tools & Supplies

The stuff that you need is pretty simple...

Empty tissue box (the long kind)
Empty Paper Towel Roll
3 Rubber bands (You may want another in case one snaps)
Something to cut with
A kid ready to have fun! (The inner kid in you works too :D)

wrapping paper tubes they are long enough to go all the way through and still stick out.

Thanks :D They're left from the most recent "Birthday Crown" my Mom has made. Maybe I should have an instructable on those too :P

is this entered in the popular science contest? It is the epitome of recycled, i'm sure you will do well...

Actually - It is - Thanks for noticing!

Does that mean you like it? :D
Yes, I do. I was thinking of bridges and differing gauges of rubber-bands, but I see how this could so easily keep kids (or adults) amused. Having hacksawed coconuts, this is something I really should have thought of. L

I think ill add both of those ideas to the instructable...tomorrow - Thanks. I had thought about the different types of rubber bands. but never thought of making a bridge.
Cancel that - I decided to do it now. I added another step showing your ideas and one of my own. I also added a sound clip in the intro of how it sounds.
