    I want to start a project with my son. The goal is to produce music playback through a speaker with something cheap like a microprocessor. I want to know if that's feasible or what other approaches should I attempt. I don't want to use any circuit board like an Arduino or teensy board. Basically, we want to make something simple like those in greeting cards so we can place them around the house.
    Thank you for any help.

    What is the source of the music? It sounds like you are talking about an MP3 player.

    Well i would like to import the music/sound from my laptop. In a way it could act as an MP3 player but limited with length maybe 10 to 30 seconds

    this statement

    and this statement

    are in compatible ... for the complexity that you are asking, there is no simple way.
    Like it or not, you are going to need something like what @KJ6EAD posted

    Even if you could buy all the components. You are not likely to be able to produce the required circuit board complexity by hand

    There may well be kits that supply the parts and circuit board as shown above.
    All you need then is some awesome soldering skills ... do you have excellent soldering skills for very fine pins and tracks as shown in that board ?

    If you want much easier ... ie... doesn't physically connect to the computer
    then you use the suggestion by @Externet and record the sound coming out of your PC speaker

    sounds like a job for an embedded sound clip from an MCU, running into an LM386 audio amp to drive a speaker.
    The downside of this is that you'll need a programming tool and your program material will not be easily changed as you'll have to compile each time you want something new.
