Paper Noisemaker
Total Time 1 hour Ages all-ages

A sheet of paper is all you'll need to create some buzz this New Year's Eve.

What you'll need

  • 8 1/2 x 11 paper
  • tape
  • scissors

How to make it

  1. What to do: Roll a sheet of office paper into a narrow tube by starting at one corner and wrapping the paper around a pencil, then slipping out the pencil after a few turns. Secure the tube with tape.

  2. Make a Paper Noisemaker - Step 2

    Gently pinch one end of the tube and snip it two thirds of the way across, as shown, to form a triangular flap. Fold up the flap so that it covers the end of the tube.

  3. To play the noisemaker: Place your lips around the uncut end. Lightly press on the flap so that it almost touches the opening. Gently inhale and release your finger. The flap will vibrate, making a noise that says,
    "Happy New Year."
