This will be one of the easiest/quickest/cheapest toys you'll ever whip up for your kiddos. "Back in the day" our telephone's used to look like this:
Here's what you need for the new and improved version:
|Funnel, Plastic Tubing, Tape|
At our local hardware store the plastic tube was found in the isle marked "plastic tubing". : ) I would say it was the plumbing section. I got about 12 feet. The funnels were from the automotive section.
Tape the funnels to the ends of the tube. Tricky stuff here people.
Ta-Da! A telephone that gets suprisingly good reception. Now, if you're 5 years old you have 20 minutes of conversation that consists of "Londy?! Can you hear me?!?" "Yes, I can hear you!! Can you hear me?!?" Repeat, repeat, repeat.
Cheaper than an iphone! Get your kiddos one today!
