How to do it - Option 1
Close the cardboard box with tape
Paint the box in your favourite colour. I’ve chosen light grey for the top and blue to paint it all around.
You can also wrap the box if you prefer not to paint it and wait until dry.
Use the markers to draw the “high-fidelity” speakers, like the draw below and remember to write your DJ name!
Paint 2 paper plates in dark grey to make the platters or jog wheels for the top.
If you don’t have paper plates, use a piece of cardboard, cut out 2 circles and paint them.
Glue the painted plates or cardboard circles on top of the box and draw squares and circles as buttons. Draw four lines for the faders or pitch sliders and cut the line.
Now, let’s do the pitch sliders. Take a lid and a rectangle of cardboard slightly smaller than the lid.
Glue it inside of the lid and introduce it in one of the lines.
Twist it so you can move it back and forward and will stay in place.
Add more details if you want and get ready to play!
Ask someone to play some disco music and you can pretend to be the DJ!
How to do it - Option 2
Print out the templates of the DJ mixer: left, middle and right side.
Print out two copies of the Hi-fi Speakers template (last page of the same file)
Repeat steps from above (option 1)
Colour the templates as you prefer. Glue the mixer templates in order, left, middle and right, on top of the cardboard box.
Do the same with the Hi-Fi Speakers. Glue them on each side of the front of the cardboard box and remember to write your DJ name!
You can add some lids as buttons, use playdough to shape pitch sliders, use stickers or coloured cardstock pieces... make use of your creativity and imagination and have fun!
Remember to ask for adult help when needed, and maybe this person will join you and become a Dj too!
