The kids and I made a fun little buzzing bug noisemaker toy together. It is so simple to put together & you likely already have everything on hand to make it.
To make it you need a craft stick, a 3 x 5 note card, a large rubber band, 2 pencil topper erasers, and some string.
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!
