In This Instructable, I am going to show how to build a simple one way telegraph, in case you get trapped in the bathroom.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Ingredients
Since this is so simple, all you need to do is go to the recycling bin, and grab some supplies. Anyway, this is what you need.
- A Piece Of Black Paper
- 2 toilet paper tubes ( I Think They're Called Derders)
- 2 rubber bands
- Tape ( just in case)
The little bits are:
- Power - Button
- Dimmer - Buzzer
Step 2: Tracing
First lay out your paper in an uncluttered area (I'm a bad example), and put your
Derders on top like so. Very loosely trace the outer paper.
Step 3: Cutting
You probably know whats gonna happen next. Cut the place where you traced.
Step 4: Assembling
Take the paper that you cut ( the one thats circular) put it on top of the Derders and rap tightly with a rubber band
Step 5: Cutting
I know what you're thinking, But I just put the scissors back! Well, go grab something sharp, at least. All you have to do is cut a a hole in the paper, close to the middle.
Step 6: Cut the Yarn
Hopefully, by this time you have made the Derders look like a mini bongo with a hole in the middle. Now, you can stretch the yarn to your desired length and cut it.
Step 7: Almost There...
Now you probably know what you're making. Put one end into each hole in the paper. Tape it, Knot it, somehow keep it in place.
Step 8: Little Bits
The moment you have been waiting for... The Little bits! The Little Bits go like this

Step 9: Finished!
Now put the little bits into the Derder and then...... tell someone your trapped in the bathroom.
Hope you like the Instructable! I like feed back and problems. See ya!
