If you are learning about bugs or maybe the sense of sound, you have to try this fun noisemaker toy! The kids and I made a fun little buzzing bug noisemaker toy together.
This little toy is also a sound experiment! It is so simple to put together & you likely already have everything on hand to make it.
How To Make The Buzzing Bug NoiseMaker:
Cut the note card into a 3 inch square. We drew some stripes on it to make it look more like a little bug. Staple the note card to the center of the craft stick. Tie a string around one end. Put the erasers on each end of the stick. Then stretch the rubber band over the whole thing.
To make it buzz, you have to spin it really fast around in a circle. My son was better at making it work than me. He loves playing with it!
The Science Behind It:
This is a great experiment to demonstrate how bugs wings make noise as they fly.
The spinning creates a vibration and these vibrations create sound waves in the air. When it is spinning, the rubber band and the paper movement together creating a buzzing sound, Just like a bugs wings!
