Thankful for Music Part 2

Here is the next fun music installment…Vivid Vocals performing Arts DIY: How to make microphones.
I remember in my kindergarten classroom we were lucky enough to have a sound system and a microphone for the students to use when talking to the class. They felt so special when they got to be in front of the class and holding that microphone. Before the sound system we had a pretend microphone for morning announcements and that was just as special. So…when my cousin Tiff showed me the microphones she made for her younger performing students I had to share!
It’s so easy…you need: gorilla glue, PVC pipe piece, 3 inch Styrofoam ball, black spray paint.
First, put a generous amount of gorilla glue around the PVC rim and add the Styrofoam ball.
Second, place a book on the top of the microphones to secure while drying.
Third, spray the Styrofoam with black paint.
Fourth, give to a child and watch the magic happen!
Thanks to Tiffie for letting me share this DIY and thanks cupcake for posing for the pic. If you live in the Utah Valley area and have a child who loves to perform classes are open for enrollment and I might be a little biased but my cousin is great with kids and her goal is to help children gain confidence and have fun performing in a group.
…and let me know if your kiddies enjoy this activity or have already enjoy performing with a microphone. Love it!
