  • Download and print our arts and crafts instructions. Important: Please choose 'Actual size' in the print settings to get the printout in its original size. That way you can ensure that it will fit perfectly onto the myHumanaPack.
  • Then cut out all the craft templates.
  • Glue the template labelled 'base' onto the base of the myHumanaPack and cut a hole in the designated area through the template and the bottom of the pack.
  • If you like, let your little hero have fun decorating the empty kitchen roll with colourful finger paints. You will find instructions for DIY finger paints here. Let the paint dry properly. Tip: Only use a thin layer of paint so that the cardboard doesn't become soft. Alternatively, you can use colourful sticky tape.
  • In the meantime, you can glue the rest of the template cutouts onto the empty, cleaned myHumanaPack. Where it is marked, cut a circle out of the package band and the myHumanaPack, thereby forming the sound hole of the guitar.
  • Slide the (decorated) kitchen-paper roll into the myHumanaPack.
  • Then stretch the rubber bands over the sound hole and attach them with some colourful sticky tape.

And now you have a new DIY musical instrument for your little hero!
