Being able to whistle with a piece of grass is a fun skill to have. You can impress your friends or amuse yourself when you find yourself sitting outside.
Today's learning tidbit is to learn how to make a grass whistle.
- Grab a piece of grass that’s at least 2 inches long. Try to get one that’s broad (wide).
- Position the grass along the outside of one of your thumbs. (I use my left thumb).
- Press your other thumb against the blade of grass (and your other thumb), starting at the base and going to the top where the nail is.
- You should have a little space between your thumbs, with the grass laying straight up and down between them.
- Try to make sure the grass is pulled straight and taut.
- Blow into the space between your thumbs to vibrate the grass and make the whistle.
- If it doesn’t work at first, try pursing your lips into a slit.
- Once you can do it, move the tips of your thumbs back and forth a little to change the position of the grass in order to vary the pitch.
