Procedure:

  1. Wrap the large elastic band around one of the jumbo popsicle sticks lengthwise (like a hot dog).
  2. Cut two small pieces of straw about 2 times longer than the width of the jumbo popsicle sticks.
  3. Insert the pieces of the straw under the elastic band on the jumbo popsicle stick. Place one at about 2 cm from each end of the popsicle stick.
  4. Place the second popsicle stick on top so the straws are sandwiched.
  5. Wrap the two small elastic bands around each end of “popsicle stick sandwich” to keep the project together. The small elastic bands should on the outside of the straws.
  6. Blow through your finished harmonica!
