We are a musical family and our daughter loves playing the "air guitar" so we decided to make a homemade one that she could really play!

How We Did It

Homemade Guitar
My daughter started by decorating an old shoe box (without the lid) with markers.

Next, we told her the guitar needed a handle and she helped tape down a paper towel roll at the end of the shoe box. She already has her rocker face on!

Next, she pulled on some rubber bands for the strings. She couldn't wait to start to plucking and strumming them!

Here she is with her finished guitar and her best rock star face on!
