Weird Noise Makers Activity
This Activity is meant for Boy Scouts, Webelos scouts.
These are some things you might make to bring along to summer camp and make weird noises at night, especially after some scary ghost stories were told.
Cut a 1/4 inch piece of plywood that is about 3 inches wide by 18 inches long.
Drill a 1/2 inch hole in one end.
Thread a 3/8 inch rope through the hole and tie a knot in the end to keep it secure.
Spin the rope round in a circle to make the Bull Roar.
Hold a 3 foot length of plastic hose and twirl it around to make a whistling sound. Different lengths and sizes make different noises. Hoses with ripples, such as dishwasher drain hoses work better.
Poke a small hole in the center of the bottom of a #10 can or coffee can.
Thread a shoelace through the hole and tie a knot to the end on the outside to hold it in place.
Wet the entire shoelace.
Hold the can with one hand and tightly grip the shoelace inside the can with thumb and finger.
Pull hard on the shoelace, gripping it tightly.
As the shoelace slides through your grip, it makes a roaring sound.
The larger the can, the bigger the roar.
