You can blow hard or soft. It doesn’t really matter. Just move your fingers around and keep blowing until you find the right spot. Some people practice for several days before they get the hang of it. Don’t give up!

This activity is from the soon-to-be published Highlights Book of Things to Do.

1. Wash your hands thoroughly.
2. Make an upside-down V with your index or pinkie fingers.

3. Put the two fingers that form the V in your mouth so that the point of the V is under the tip of your tongue.

4. Push your fingers back a bit so that your tongue curls backward.

5. Close your lips around your fingers. This allows air to pass only through the small triangular hole between your fingers.

6. Blow!
