Here’s a fun music craft project your preschooler can play with when the craft is finished. Make a guitar (or bango, violin, etc.) out of recycled cracker boxes and cardboard tubes. Your preschooler can help put the entire piece together and then strum a little tune to finish off the show.
Materials you will need:
- Cardbord box
- Cardboard tube
- Rubber bands
- Duct tape
How to make a toy guitar:
You could make a variety of different instruments using these simple materials. If you’d like, paint the cardboard before assembling your guitar or decorate with other embellishments like glitter or even hand drawn art. Try making recycled box guitars of different sizes using different types of boxes and compare the sounds they make.

I have short rubber bands!
Try using smaller cardboard pieces like a little snack box instead.
