funnelphone

                                       Without fail, and for every age from 3 years old through
                                       2nd graders, teachers to 5th graders,
                                       a huge grin spreads over everyone's face when they
                                       first hear sound through this device, which comes from
                                       the garden room to the studio, and is made out of a
                                       garden hose and some funnels.

  1. I'm glad you posted this Anna - it reminds me that this is something I would love to do with the kids this year. How did you attach the funnels to the hose? Do you just wrap tape around it?

  3. These are so great. My 22month old son LOVES it. He is just amazed when he can hear mummy talking through the tube. Ours is only short though. I never thought of making a really long one out of hose - that's now on my to-do list. Thanks.

  4. Hello Aussies, and thanks for the comments!
    Jenny, my careful friend and colleague Sara tested all the funnels she could find and found 4 that fit right into the hose. Every so often they pop out and the kids just put them back in.
