National Kazoo Day!

We celebrated National Kazoo Day on January 28th.  The Kazoo is a musical instrument that has a buzzing sound when you hum into it.  It can be made of metal, plastic, wood and other materials.  It was invented in America in the 1840’s by Alabama Vest, from Macon, Georgia. Our preschool children and grandmas and grandpas listened to Miss Mae read the story, “The Duck Who Played the Kazoo,” written by Amy E. Slansky and then played several songs with the kazoos.  They also made their own kazoos using paper towel rolls, which they painted.  It was a fun, noisy day!
