Whistle With a Blade of Grass
Learn how to make a loud honk with just a blade of grass!
  • Long, wide blade of grass
Step 1
Find a Long, Wide Blade of Grass

Step 2
Hold the Grass
  • Cup your hands together with your thumbs lined up and the blade of grass sandwiched between them. Your thumbs should touch at the top and bottom, leaving an opening in the middle.
  • Hold the grass tightly between your thumbs.
Step 3
Blow and Whistle!

Blow through the opening. When the grass vibrates, it will make a sound. This is a little tricky, so, if it doesn't work at first, keep trying until it does!
