Straw Pan Flute

The most fun we’ve ever had with straws, this flute is easy to make and fun to play!

What You’ll Need:

  • Straws
  • Scissors
  • Tape

1. Cut your straws so you end up with different lengths.

2. Put them side-by-side in the order of your choosing. Secure with tape.

3. Blow or hum through the straws to make music.

Things To Think About:  

  • What happens when you try different lengths and arrangements?
  • Can you make a flute with a double layer of straws?
  • What happens if you cut a hole in one of the straws and then cover and uncover it as you play?
  • What happens to the sound when the straw is longer or shorter?
