Have you heard of Mozart's Magic Flute? Well, let me tell you about the Magic Carrot.
My daughter had a physics project in which she had to create a musical instrument using household items and a little math.
My girl and her lab partner decided on a paper flute. (Or more correctly, the lab partner decided this.) Unfortunately, the paper didn't work so well. Not surprising. So, a new item had to be found. That new item was a carrot.
My daughter did the math. Then she got out a drill and knife. When she was finished, she had something that looked like a recorder. Then the true test: Would it make music?
She blew through it. First time it sounded like nothing but air blowing through a carrot. With a little tweaking of the mouthpiece, it produced a pitch. And when fingers covered the holes, new pitches were produced.
It doesn't sound anything like the flute in Mozart's Magic Flute, but rabbits who happen to be in the area may find the sound (and smell) pleasing, which might lure them in. Which means my dog, Schultz will have something to chase. Pure magic.
