Rubber Band Lap Harp

By Amber and Tayler


This musical instrument is called Rubber band Lap Harp. Amber's dad helped make the instrument. To make the harp's shape, Amber's dad had to use a pipe bender. To hold the rubber bands we used 1 inch screws. Amber's dad used a wrench to tighten the screws. Amber and I took rubber bands and put two knots in the center, so there were two spots on a string. Then Amber and I stretched them out and put each side of the rubber bands on the screws. After we finished the project, we invented the name Rubber band lap harp.
