I'm making tools to create Ocarinas

My fifth grade students are beginning the making of ocarinas today.  I discovered a post on Ceramic Art that I will share with you here.  How to make an ocarina.  The tools are made with a simple craft stick with the end sanded to an angle.  Two sticks are used to create the blow hole for the whistle.  I gave it a try and the tools are very fast and efficient.  I'll let you know in a few weeks how it goes with the 5 th graders!
