Step 1: Materials

Simple materials:

Thick straw (likes of the MC Donalds)

Pair of scissors

Step 2: How to Make

Start by making small diagonal cut on one side of the straw. And keep cutting into a spiral. Cut until about 1 or 2 inches is left intact of the straw. Now the straw will be wobbly. You are done!

Step 3: How to Play

Just keep the straw in your mouth and blow hard. The cut end will jiggle and dance.

Other options. You can use a blown up balloon as a air port and stick the straw in it. It works.
