My instrument is called the "Frog Guitar." Jim helped me make it. First Jim got a shovel stick and cut a piece off and sanded it and lightly stained it.

Then I got a small coffee can and I spray painted it tan. I measured the width of the coffee can and then I put the piece of wood in the coffee can.

Then I cut a slit in the wood. Then my Dad screwed the piece of shovel in the coffee can. Then I flued the piece of wood in the coffee can too.

Then my Mom drove me to Wal-Mart to buy some stickers. Then I decorated the can with stickers. Then I glued a knob on the side of the shovel stick. Then I drilled a hole at the top of the shovel and my Dad put a washer and screw to hold the string.
