Step 1: Assemble the Materials
Gather the materials so that you have everything ready to go.
Step 2: Attach the Glove
Attach the base or wrist section of the glove to the end of the cardboard tube. Use the rubber band to secure it in place.
Step 3: Cut a Hole in the Finger Tip of the Glove
Cut a small hole in the top of one of the finger tips of the glove. I think the middle finger works best, but feel free to experiment to see which one works well for you.
Step 4: Attach the Straw to the Glove
Insert the straw into the hole at the tip of the finger. Attach it by wrapping masking tape around it so that it is secure.
Step 5: You're Done!
To play, pull the glove tight over the top of the cardboard tube and blow. Your breath makes the glove vibrate and produces a glorious sound!
Play around with different sizes and lengths of tubes to produce a variety of pitches.
Enjoy the sweet sounds!
