Did you know that straws can make music… or rather, that if you cut drinking straws into different lengths, they will make different sounds when you blow into them? Just try it! And when you put them together, there might even be music 🙂

You will need 6-8 straws, some sticky tape and a pair of scissors. Cut a long strip of sticky tape and put the straws on the sticky side, arranging them in twos from the shortest to the longest ones.

Secure well with more sticky tape so that the straws will not move around.

If you have colored sticker paper, you may decorate your instrument.

Your attempts to extract a harmonious sound may now begin 🙂
