MOST EXCITING LIFE HACKS

Did you know you can make a flute with a carrot! Wait what? You heard me! All you have to do is cut it in the right places. Then get a party started!

You will need:
A drill and bits to make a large and small hole. A 1/2" drill bit and a 15/64" bit worked for me.
Sharp knife
1 or more carrots
Cutting board
Long, narrow tools to take carrot debris out of the hole. E.g. skewer or chopstick.

Using the sharp knife, cut the carrot top off of the carrot. This provides a flat surface that you will drill into.
Using the 1/2" drill bit, drill a hole that starts at the flat surface of the carrot that you just made, and goes along the length of the carrot. I went about 1/3 of the way into the carrot.
Take out all of the carrot bits, as they will prevent the sound from being clear and sharp. Use a skewer, chopstick, the bit, or anything you can find that will fit down the hole. I used a pen.

Hold the carrot in front of you with the carrot top side facing up. You will need to drill a hole, using the smaller bit, a bit down from the top of the carrot. I chose a spot that ended up being about an inch down the side. I've found that if you go too far down, the sound is not very good.

You may want to blow down the various holes and tap the carrot on the cutting board to ensure the debris is all removed.
Now you are ready to play! Have fun, make more, have each person play one and see what sounds you get!
