note: this is not my idea, i just found it somewhere

Step 1: You Will Need...

a drinking straw
pliers
scissors

Step 2:

flatten the end of the straw with the pliers

Step 3: THE CUT!

cut the flattned end like in the picture

Step 4: More Cutting

cut some holes in the straw, i have painted them black so it becomes easier to see them

Step 5: Play It!

now to play it:
play it just like a normal flute, hold the pointed end in your mouth and one finger on each hole, relese the fingers from the holes to get diffrent tones

MY PARENTS HATE THIS SO MUCH!
Ok, that's not a flute... But a reed instrument. Still cool thought. A flute is blowing over a hole providing a whistle sound.
