Introduction: Soda Can Whistle

Here is how to make a LOUD whistle from a soda can

Step 1: Supplies

All you need is a pair of scissors and a soda can

Step 2: Cutting the Can

Cut the top and bottom off of the can. Then cut a line right down it You should have a sheet of aluminum. Cut a 3/4 of an inch by 2 inch and a another 1/2 of an inch by 1 1/2 inch out of the sheet. After that you should have a lot left over.

Step 3: Folding

Put the small piece of aluminum on top of the big piece it should look like a cross shape. Bend the smaller piece around the bigger piece. Then bend the bigger piece 1/4 of an inch over the smaller piece. bend the end of the big piece to a right angle. Bend the excess piece into a p shape that lines up where the air escapes after blowing through the mouth piece.

Step 4: Using

Be for you using it for the first time stick sum kind of a wedge in it to make the mouth hole bigger. Hold the loop with thumb and index finger and then blow like a normal whistle.
If it will not work make sure that the mouth peace is lined up with the loop.

This is great! I have access to a lot of unwanted cans, and I'm looking for something to make out of them and sell on my dorm. Would you be OK with my using your design?

Can you post the video on youtube? I'm also one of those folk who find it difficult to follow pictures. Wish I was better at that......

Take two beer bottle caps, make a notch on the crown shaped part, glue those to the side of your whistle (some measurement before is recommended).

Voilà: no need to use your fingers to close the sides and a sturdier structure

This sounds like alot of fun to make. However I find the picture to be confusing. Is there any way you could post a short video of the making process. Thanks
