Popstick Harmonica

Download Activity Sheet
What is more fun than playing a musical instrument? Making your own! Create your own popstick harmonica following these five easy steps.
  • Step 1Begin by decorating one side of two popsticks, as shown in the image above. You can colour in your popsticks or decorate them in a number of ways.
  • Step 2Cut a piece of coloured A4 cover paper so that it is the same width and length as your popsticks. Then cut your toothpick in half so that it is the same width as your popsticks.
  • Step 3Place one of your decorated popsticks facing down so that the blank side is facing up. Then place the coloured cover paper onto that popstick, followed by the second popstick on top. Once assembled, wrap a rubber band around one end as shown.
  • Step 4Once the popsticks and cover paper are secured at one end, place one of the toothpicks pieces in between the two, above the paper. Then push it down towards the rubber band.
  • Step 5Wrap the other end loosely with a rubber band then place in the other toothpick piece, this time under the cover paper. Tighten the rubber band.
  • Experiment with the rubber bands to see how they affect the sound. Loosen or tighten them, then try blowing softly or hard to see how the pitch is effected! Now you are ready to make some music!
