Yesterday I put on a pair of headphones to drown out the noise in the house. I really, truly just couldn’t take ONE MORE scream, argument, whine, or even a happy-but-way-too-loud rendition of Into The Unknown.
And now that these Cool Cat Headphones exist, I might be wearing my headphones a little more often
WHAT YOU NEED:
HOW TO MAKE:
Create two balls of Playdoh. Flatten each ball gently with the palm of your hand and then use your fingers to make a bowl-shaped area in the center of each one.
Curve a pipecleaner and connect each end of it to one of your Playdoh “earpieces”.
Cut smaller pieces of pipecleaners for the ears. Bend them in half and then form a triangle shape as you attach each one to the other pipecleaner.
Attach a string to one of the earpieces.
At the end of the string, add a small cylinder of Playdoh to act as the jack.
VOILA! You’re ready to rock out!
Venture into other types of headphones! Think unicorns, dinosaurs or teddy bears!
Open a “headphone” shop! Create a company name and logo to go along with your products!
Bigger kids might be interested in researching the evolution of headphones.

When do you like to listen to music?
Who is your favourite singer or musical group?
