Step 1: Supplies

You will need:
a soda can

Step 2: Making

Picture of making
put a little water into the bottom of the can so there is about 1/2 inch of water in the can.
then, bend the little tab so it sticks straight up.

Step 3: Using

flick the can to make a sound.
now, you might think that's boring: well, here's the cool part:
instead of flicking the can when it's straight up, which makes a higher sound, flick it while it's tilted, which makes the sound lower. 
The closer the can to horizontal, the lower the sound.
Have fun!
p.s. .my camera does weird things to sounds so the sound is all messed up but you can still hear it
