    I need to make a musical instrument by Wednesday. Anyone think of a good one :wtf:

    I need one that is actually gonna look like a Grade 7 kid did it... And it has to be creative xPP

    And not too complicated to make. I was thinking Banjo, but I am still thinking of stuff to use when making it.

    So any ideas? And maybe a little guide to help when creating it.

    This is probably too simple (since I remember this from blues clues when I was a kid). Get an empty tissue box, rubber bands, and a toilet/ paper towel roll. Put the rubber bands on the tissue box long way and glue the tube to the top. Now you got a guitar/ banjo thing. Just paint it to make it look less crappy.

    Just googled it. haha.
    Came up with this. Seems affordable, and practical.
    Doesn't look too terribly difficult to build.

    I forgot to mention this... It has to make actual sounds x3

    @ Man18 ~ I don't think I will be making anything there x3

    @ Dino ~ too classical. It won't even look like Grade 7 work... More like Grade 2 Work. but I guess it might jsut end up being a back up plan

    @ Blythe ~ Aaahhh... It looks sooo complicated O_O

    How about Maracas? Just get some old film tubes for cameras and put beans in there. Maracas seem to pretty simple to make. Just put uncooked beans or something in a hollow case.

    Maracas are taken I think... And I haven't seen a kazoo... For too long.

    Containers with different amounts of water in them. Claim you've never seen them before.
