Noise Maker for Less Than $1

About: When I was six, my parents bought me a marble contraption set, and I have been building stuff since! I love to tinker, mess with, and just build stuff in my free time!

This is a very simple instructable on how to make a noise maker! This noise maker costs less than one dollar, makes many different pitches, and is very simple to make. It is also very loud!! To make a sound all you do is blow into it, and to change the pitch, just slide the levers! So go ahead, and start making your noise maker!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

You will need;

-Two small popsicle sticks

-Three rubber bands

-A straw

-And scissors

Step 2: Assembling the Parts

First you need to stretch a rubber band across the length of one popsicle stick. Then you need to cut the straw into two, one inch pieces. Next, lay down the popsicle stick with the rubber band down. Place one straw piece under the rubber band towards the top, and one on top of the rubber band on the bottom. Now lay the popsicle stick on top of the other, making sure the straw pieces are still in the middle.

Step 3: Finishing Touches

To finish the project, wrap two rubber bands around the very end. Make sure you can slide the straws left and right. To make moving the straw easier, push the straw that are hanging out together, so they are straight up and down.

How to Play:

1. Put lips over the popsicle stick.

2. Blow.

3. Move straws together to make higher pitch

... and happy making!!!
