Make a straw flute

Make a straw flute

Big kids and little kids will love this easy musical craft activity. All you need are straws, scissors and sticky tape, to turn your trash into musical treasure and a fun kids craft.

What you need:

  • 8 plastic drinking straws
  • sticky tape
  • scissors
  • a ruler
  • pen or pencil

Number of players:


Start by cutting your first straw at 20cm. Then the next straw will be cut 2cm shorter, at 18cm. Cut each straw 2cm shorter than the last until you have cut them all.

Line up your straws longest to shortest.

Sticky tape them together in that pan flute formation.

Your child should blow across the top of the straws to get a sound. The longest straws will be deepest, the shortest will be highest.
