Summer is a good time for the kids to craft and make projects. It is also the perfect occasion for the kids to get together and be creative. My daughter, Louise and her three best friends are inseparable—singing, dancing, jumping, pretending, and playing their favorite games. They have one dream in common: to form their own band and become rock stars. Oh, and be famous for sure. Oh, and wear incredible clothes, high heels, and makeup!

None of them know how to play guitar, drums, or piano—yet. But it is doesn’t matter as long as they have fun. So while they’re waiting to be world-renowned singers and musicians, I figured we could make something in the meantime. Maybe having a band is not a bad idea…maybe pretending to have a band is a good idea!

I decided to help out the girls a little bit so I made a fun electric guitar out of leftover cardboard. I added some paint and colors, and the magic happened! You couldn’t imagine how many stars I saw in these girls’ eyes when I gave the guitars to them—the best present by far—and the best pretending accessory ever, according to the 6-and-3/4-year-old girls.

A few minutes later—makeup, hair, and clothes ready—the concert starts. It was the best one I’ve ever seen. Trust me, you’re going to want to see one for your own. So let’s get started!

I did this Rockstar Guitar for Louise and Handmade Charlotte. All the tutorial as well as the template is here: Rockstar Guitar
