(re)capturing the fun & wonder

Paper plate banjo


This one was from the Peninsula School’s Holiday Craft Fair.

You have to hold the banjo pretty close up to hear it well, but the sound is amazing — reminds me of a Didgeridoo — way cool!

To make your own:

  • Wrap three strong rubber-bands around a thick paper plate
  • Staple that plate onto another one so you can’t displace the rubber-bands
  • Hot-glue on a paint stirring stick for the arm
  • Decorate
  • Strum!

I can’t emphasize enough how much I like easy projects :-)
