  • Straws
  • Scissors
  • Sellotape

Steps: 

  • Step 1: Gather straws that you have at home, if they are different colours you have an opportunity to also discuss and introduce about patterns.

  • Step 2: If the straw has a flexible bend, cut off just below the last crease.

  • Step 3: Prepare sticky tape on a flat surface with the sticky part facing up

  • Step 4: Place all straws on the sticky tape in a pattern (if using coloured straws) secure by folding the tape cutting off any excess tape.

  • Step 5: Cut one end of the straws on a diagonal. This will give the straw various lengths

  • Step 6: Children can now blow into the straws and make beautiful music!
