This is one craft that I am pretty proud of. It’s easy, mess-free and lotsa fun!
All you will need is:
- 1 cereal box
- 1 milk carton
- 1 ice cream stick
- rubber bands
- scissors and lots of tape
Step 2: Cut off a portion of the sides of the milk carton. If you are wondering how much to cut off. It really depends how long you want the neck of the ukulele to be. I just agar agar cut of a length of it. While the portion you cut can be arbitrary, please make sure that both sides are equal. so you won’t end out with a lopsided neck.
Step 3: Cut a hole in the center of the cereal box. If you have more time (and patience), you can be creative here and cut out other shapes.
Step 4: Join the neck and the body together with lots of tape.
Step 5: Tie one end of the rubber bands round the ice-cream stick
Step 6: Tape down the ice-cream stick then tie the other ends of the rubber bands together and fasten them with the milk carton cap. And, you done!
