At-Home Craft: Make Your Own Flute

It’s craft time! Join Sarah from the Seattle Symphony’s Education & Community Engagement team as she shows you how to make your own flute.

What you’ll need

  • 1 sheet of paper
  • Coloring supplies
  • 1 three-inch square of parchment or wax paper
  • 1 rubber band
  • Hole punch or scissors
  • Tape

Steps to make your instrument

  • Roll the piece of paper into a long tube and tape it
  • Pinch the tube about three inches down from one end and punch two holes in a row, making a single oval shaped hole, or cut a “V” shape with scissors in the pinch
  • Close the end of the tube nearest the punched hole by wrapping the parchment paper over the end of the tube, and securing it with a rubber band
  • Color and decorate your flute
  • Place the hole punched hole near your mouth and blow across it, or hum as you blow across to play!

Don’t have the needed materials? No problem! Check out this website where you can color a flute online for free.
