Step 1: Popsicle Stick Buzz Harmonica

This little buzzing harmonica sure makes a big sound!

Please check out the video below!
I wasn't buzzing any particular tune, but you could do simple songs.  Maybe play these at a birthday party?
 


Step 2:

The first step is to gather your materials. 
You'll need:
2 Popsicle sticks
2 rubber bands
1 toothpick
1 strip of paper

You'll also need scissors to cut the paper.
If you want to be decorative, you can cover the sticks in duct tape like me.



Step 3:

Next, cut a strip of paper the approximate size of the Popsicle stick.  Then cut two pieces of toothpick the width of the stick.



Step 4:

Lay the strip of paper over the Popsicle stick and a toothpick piece on top of it.


Step 5:

Wrap a rubber band on the side with the toothpick.  Then put the second toothpick piece on the opposite side of the paper.


Step 6:

Secure the final rubber band around the open end, and put your mouth lightly on the Popsicle sticks.  Blow fast, and you'll get a loud buzz that you can change the pitch of depending on how much you squeeze your lips on the Popsicle sticks.  Enjoy!
