I will show you how to make a small, handy kazoo that is shaped like a harmonica. It has many uses, including annoying your fiends and for sound effects in a video, you choose. Make sure you use it wisely.

Now it's time to put the scissors to work! Cut out a 16cm wide and 2cm highpiece of cardboard, make two of these. Now fold those two pieces in half. Next, cut out four 2cm by 1cm pieces.

Step 4: Cutting and Taping

Now you need to use the wax paper. The piece of wax paper is 8cm wide and 2cm high. Next is the taping, make this piece of tape 4 cm high and 8cm wide with cuts in the top corners large enough for the small pieces of cardboard. Make two of these pieces of tape and put them on the folded pieces of cardboard, make sure that one side of the cardboard has the side of tape on it that doesn't have the holes. Now take the small pieces of cardboard and glue/tape them to the spots on the cardboard that don't have tape on them. Do this with all four. Now put on the wax paper, tape it to both sides of the cardboard overtop of the small pieces of cardboard.

Step 5: Finishing

Now to finish, tape both of the pieces of cardboard together with the small pieces of cardboard sides facing toghether. Make sure you tape on the sides. To use it blow into one of the sides and you should hear a sound similar to that of a kazoo. The url below will take you to a video of me playing the kazoo.
