You Will Need
- A blade of grass
- Two thumbs
Pick a blade of grass
Pick a flat blade of grass that’s as long as your thumbs.
Put the grass between your thumbs
Press your thumbs together at the knuckles with your fingernails facing you. Put the grass lengthwise between your thumbs.
Pull the grass taut
Pull the grass taut, so there are no kinks. You should see the edge of the blade centered in a gap between the base of your thumbs and your knuckles.
Purse your lips, put your mouth to your thumbs, and blow. You may have to move your lips or thumbs slightly to make a sound, so keep trying.
Experiment with sounds
Play around with different kinds of grasses and reeds. You can make as many different sounds as there are blades of grass on your lawn.
