Create Your Own Sound Effects Activity

Create Your Own Sound Effects

You can record several scary sounds and play it back during your Halloween festivities.
-A very large sheet of poster board or sheet metal makes great thunder.
-Uncooked rice poured onto a cookie sheet sounds like rain.
-Crinkle a handful of cellophane for a roaring fire.
-To get a good scream you can, well -- scream.
-Snap carrots in half for the sound of breaking bones.
-Flap a plastic bag in front of the microphone for the sound of bats.
-Slowly blow bubbles with a straw into a bowl for a bog sound.
-Hunt around your house and garden to find a squeaky hinge somewhere and tape it before someone gets to it with a can of oil.
