I’ve shared our love for Kidz Bop before so you won’t be surprised when I tell you that we’ve added to our collection a few times since. My girls love to sing, like LOVE to sing.
And the first time I heard them singing along with the radio I was tickled because, hey they can keep up with the songs finally instead of singing the words a little slower like they did when they were little, but “Hey, they don’t need to know THOSE words!”
That’s the reason we tried Kidz Bop for the first time and the reason my girls now consider themselves Kidz Bop kids. If you’ve never heard Kidz Bop versions of top hits, you might be surprised that we now actually sometimes prefer the KB versions!
Their singers are just great and you don’t feel like you’re listening to a “kid version” at all. I’m totally guilty of leaving the CD in even when the girls aren’t in the car.
So when Kidz Bop 33 showed up at our door for review, I wasn’t surprised when the girls wanted to put it in a CD player right then. I also wasn’t surprised when Sophia started bouncing around pretending to sing in a toilet paper roll that we had in our pile of arts and crafts supplies.
Then *ding ding ding* she said “Mom, we could make our own microphones!” Yes, I have a little craft girl on my hands!
After chatting about what she wanted it to look like, we gathered supplies that we already had at home… and things you probably do too! Want to make your own DIY microphones for your Kidz Bop kids?
Here’s what you’ll need:
- Empty Paper Towel Rolls [we cut one in half] or Toilet Paper Rolls
- Acrylic Paint
- Aluminum Foil
The girls put a couple of quick coats of paint on their paper towel tubes. We also had some paint-on glitter that we added on top once the blue and purple were dry, which didn’t take long at all.
I’ve seen variations of DIY microphones that use small styrofoam balls wrapped in aluminum foil as the top and sure, it looks a little neater, but I didn’t have those balls at home and honestly, you don’t need them. Your kiddos will have a ball, making aluminum foil balls!
I decided to hot glue our aluminum foil balls into the top of the tube to make them a bit more sturdy. I did the same for the jewels because I knew my Kidz Bop kids would be playing with these microphones a lot.
And I was right… we’ve been treated to a lot of concerts since this CD made it’s way to our house. And in case you’re wondering, we keep #1 and #10 on constant replay. Check out the tracks on the newest Kidz Bop CD here.
