Whistle with an acorn cap!
You can whistle with an acorn cap too! Here's how:
Find a whole, unbroken acorn cap.
Make a fist with both hands, and place your hands, knuckle to knuckle.
Place the acorn cap on the top of your pointer fingers and hold it in place with both of your thumbs.
Separate your thumbs slightly, bending them into a "v" shape. (Make sure the rest of the acorn cap is covered with the bottom part of your thumbs.)
Blow on your thumb knuckles.
A little tip: Okay I know this sounds gross, but it works so . . .
Sometimes it helps to lick the insides of your thumbs. It makes the whistle more clear.
Oh, and don't give up. When you finally get the hang of this, the resounding whistle is worth all the work, I promise!
