How to Make Your Own Toy Microphone

Updated February 21, 2017

If your little one is an aspiring singer, you can make a simple microphone craft together. Assembling the microphone only requires inexpensive supplies that you will most likely already have at home. Within a few minutes, you can make an attractive toy microphone for your little budding star.

Cut approximately 2 inches off of the end of a paper towel tube. This will make the tube more similar to the length of an actual microphone's handle.

Wrap the tube in construction paper and glue the paper to secure it.

Decorate the handle with markers, stickers or paint. If you use paint, allow it to dry thoroughly before moving on.

Ball up some aluminium foil. Make the ball close to the width of the paper towel tube.

Apply a bead of glue to the inside rim of the end of the paper towel tube and push the edge of the aluminium foil ball into the edge of the tube.
