The song may be part of a movie, a kid's video or just a song we like. It may or may not include words. I'll try and include why we like it and/or the history of the song/singer.
This week I'm focusing on my own, Mica. He made a phonograph with Daddy for his science fair.
It is pretty disposable. It's made out of a Graco car seat box, wooden gears, dowel rods, plastic cup, needle, a few other wooden pieces and coins to weight the needle arm.
The sound was like listening to the Chipmunks. They never could get the sound perfect. After the science fair, the sound is horrible. Yep too many kids played with it. The box warped and the gears striped. Again it's made to be disposable. I just wish I would have caught a video of it while it sounded like the Chipmunks.
Even thought it wasn't perfect, it was pretty cool. I loved seeing Mica get all excited with it as it progressed. Now he knows what a phonograph is.
Here's his writing about it.
Here are the inside parts:
He's probably the only kid in his class that knows that music used to be on flat round things! :)
We have an old crank phonograph in our basement. The do sound really funny... kind of like putting your head in a bucket and singing.
now that is awesome... and side note, i love his handwriting... very neat :)
