arvind gupta toys

Children love to play with rotating toys. How about making one, with the children with everyday materials?

Materials required: string, hollow plastic ball (any pipe with one end close, hollow bamboo with one end closed), thin bamboo stick (or barbecue stick), ice cream stick (or anything similar)

Points of Discussion:

This Walking Cylinder is made from a toilet roll, straws and other odd materials.

Press fit a long plastic pen tube in a bottle lid. Press a hard straw on the rim for blowing. Stretch a torn balloon on the lid to make a taut membrane. Push the pen from below to touch the membrane. Now on blowing through the straw you will hear loud sound. The vibrating membrane will produce the sound.
