The Native American flute is one of the oldest instruments in the world. It was commonly used in ceremonies, or for pure entertainment, depending on the tribe. To create your own craft flute, all you need is an empty paper towel roll, a pencil, a small, square piece of paper and a rubber band. Decorate the paper towel roll using paint or markers. Once it’s dry, use the pencil to poke five to six holes in the roll. Place the paper at one end of the roll, and wrap a rubber band around the edges to secure it in place.
