IKEA Straw Pan pipes

I was busy preparing the ingredients for us to make flapjacks when Little Bee noticed a bag of straws in the drawer as I was getting the baking paper out. She asked me if she could have some straws and I passed the bag of straws to her.

She took one of each colour and ran off. A few minutes later she came  back complaining that it is just not working and asked me to help.

I went to the front room wondering what she was up to and the end product is this colourful pan pipe.

It doesn’t sound that melodious as a proper pan pipe but it does have different notes when you blow through the straws.

Now she wants to bring the bag of straws to school so she could make it with her classmates. My ever so thoughtful Little Bee 🙂
