Have you ever picked up a hairbrush or spoon and started singing into it? As silly as it sounds, belting out a song into a pretend microphone can be fun. Here is a way to make a toy microphone using simple household items.
- An Unsharpened Pencil
- a few sheets of old newspaper
- Optional: glitter glue, stickers, paint or anything that will stick to tinfoil to decorate it with.
- Cover the unsharpened pencil with some tinfoil and if needed, tape the ends just like you’re wrapping a present.
- Crumble some sheets of newspaper into a ball, then cover it with tinfoil. The tinfoil makes everything shiny like a real microphone.
- Push the covered pencil halfway into the tinfoil ball. Tape may be needed to keep it in place.
- If you’d like to decorate your microphone, use glitter glue, stickers or different kinds of nail polish to really make it special. Now you can play your favorite song and sing away.
