Whistling Grass

Here is a simple and fun activity everyone can enjoy when you’re outdoors and anywhere near grass.  Just take a wide blade of grass and place it tightly between your thumbs.  Blow onto the small opening and the grass will whistle!

It actually sounds like a turkey call.  Try different blade thicknesses and widths to see if you can change the sound.

 Can you make up a song using this whistle from nature?

  1. We used to do that as kids. there is also a leaf (maybe from a redbud) that we used to get and put it on our fist and then slap it with our other hand. It would pop a loud noise and make a tear in the leaf.
