We learned from Paul Showers' Hear Your Heart, a "Stage 2 Let's-Read-And-Find-Out About" book, that an empty toilet paper roll makes a pretty good stethoscope.
Of course, my youngest two, thought they needed to decorate the tubes. I suggested covering them in tissue paper. C, wanted purple, but settled for overlapping the red, and blue we had in the cupboard (which sort of gives you purple).
I had them brush on watered down glue, and then stick tissue paper squares to the tubes.
They had a great time brushing on the glue. In fact, it may be several days, before their stethoscopes are dry enough to use.

It's great to be a homeschooler.
