I specifically chose two of each colour when I ordered the whistle tubes. You may want more, you may want less. Have fun with them in the intended way first though – swing your arm round and round and listen to the whistle that is made as you twirl it slower or faster.
Use the cable ties to attach the willow trellis to your fence or railing. If like me, you find that one cable is too short to go around the fence board, thread two together to make an extra large cable tie. Genius! (I can’t claim credit for this tip – my neighbour was watching with interest and told me what to do!)
Start attaching your tubes! It helps to have an idea in your head or even better, a plan drawn out. I however, just jumped straight in as I had an excited little man waiting patiently beside me.
I chose one tube to have the ‘shower attachment’ (my son did put his head underneath this and soaked himself so be warned). I simply pushed it inside the end and cable tied it tightly in place. Cable ties are AMAZING for DIY! Why don’t I use them more often?!
Little man loved it. I gave him his old baby bottles that had been sat in the cupboard and they are a perfect size for his hands and hold a good amount of water for pouring. He added his play kitchen pots and pans and had great fun anticipating where the water would come out.
He poured, he caught, he tipped and splashed and got thoroughly soaked. That’s summer sorted and £20 well spent in my book.
