Imagine the light, sweet sounds of a Chinese Dizi flute! Instead of bamboo, this easy, colorful replica is made with a cardboard roll.
The Dizi flute (also called the Di, D'Tzu, or Zhu Di) is the most popular flute in Asia. It’s made from bamboo, often with silk wound around it to prevent cracking. The sound is made by vibrating rice paper that was soaked in garlic juice.
To create your own Dizi replica, use Crayola® Scissors to cut a cardboard roll to flute size. Color your flute with Crayola Gel Markers to look like bamboo. Show the mouthpiece, rice paper hole, and six finger holes, too.
Draw rings of bright colors around the flute or tie colored thread in several places. Make a tassel from yarn. Tie it to your flute.
Roll Crayola Model Magic into a thin coil. Flatten it with your fingers. Press half of the coil around each end of your flute. Secure it with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the flute overnight.
Hum along to make your own beautiful flute sounds. Better yet, make flutes with your friends for a choir.
