Tissue Box Guitar

Your tween will love making this cool music craft. Have him empty a tissue box, rectangular or square, and pull off the plastic from the underside of the opening. Then, he’ll need to carefully stretch four or five rubber bands around the hole in the center of box, spacing them evenly. Then, he can start plucking! The tone of each "string" will depend on the width, tautness, and placement of the rubber bands.
