Introduction: Cheap and Simple Noise Maker

This Instructable will show you how to make a simple Noise Maker. All you need to make this Noise Maker is a straw and some scissors!! Please be nice in the comments, this is my first Instructable. :D (Yea I know, things like this have been done before, but I learnt this from my friends at school, so I feel as though I can have my chance at re-doing this epic tutorial)

Step 1: Preparing the Straw

Get the straw and squeeze the tip of it with your fingers until it stays flat.

Step 2: Cutting the Straw

Cut the squashed end of the straw into a point as demonstrated in the pictures.

Step 3: How to Play It!!

It may seem difficult on your first go, but it doesn't take long to master the art of the Noise Maker. Put your top and bottom lip over the cut end of the straw and squeeze them together. Blow into it, and it should make a low or high (Depending on straw size, longer = deeper sound) buzzing sound. If it doesn't, experiment with how tight you squeeze your lips together, and it should eventually work. This little contraption makes scaring/annoying your friends super easy!! Enjoy making people really annoyed, and thanks for reading my first Instructable!!

    I was thinking about doing an instructable just like this lol.

    Did you ever try blowing in it and then cutting the straw as you blow? You have to be quick, have sharp scissors, and careful not to cut your nose off :-)

    Nice first instructable!
