How to whistle without using your fingers
There are many ways to whistle without using your fingers. One way is to curl your tongue back and then let out a puff of air. Another way is to make a hole in your mouth with your tongue and teeth and then let out a puff of air. You can also use a straw or a reed to whistle.
How to whistle using your fingers
If you want to whistle using your fingers, there are two primary ways to do it. The first is to use both hands, and the second is to use just one hand.
To whistle using both hands, place your thumbs in your mouth with the bottoms of your thumbs touching your canines (the pointed teeth next to your incisors). Next, tuck your index fingers behind your bottom lip and push them up slightly so that they are touching the bottom of your top lip. When you are ready to whistle, purse your lips and blow. You may need to adjust the placement of your fingers until you find a sweet spot that produces a clear tone.
To whistle using just one hand, place the tips of your index and middle fingers in between your teeth (as if you were going to whistle without using your fingers). Next, place the pad of your thumb on top of those two fingers and apply pressure. When you are ready to whistle, purse your lips and blow. You may also want to try cupping your hand around your mouth to help amplify the sound.
How to whistle using a straw
Start by holding a drinking straw in your mouth with your teeth. Next, place your tongue behind your top front teeth. Then, place the tip of your index finger over the top of the straw. Finally, suck on the straw and remove your finger quickly.
How to whistle using a blade of grass
1. Look for a long, thin blade of grass. The thinner the better. If you can’t find one, try folding a blade of grass in half until it’s very thin.
2. Put the blade of grass between your thumbs and hold it tight.
3. Put your lips together and blow. You should feel the grass vibrating between your thumbs.
How to whistle using a piece of paper
Fold a rectangular piece of paper in half lengthwise. Unfold the paper and then refold it in half widthwise. Unfold the paper again and then refold it so that all four corners meet in the center.
Pinch one end of the paper together so that it forms a small point. Put your lips together as if you were going to whistle, and place the point of the paper between your lips. Blow gently across the top of the paper until you hear a high-pitched sound.

How to whistle using a bottle
Start by holding the bottle at the neck with your thumb and first 2 fingers. Place your lips around the opening of the bottle and blow. Be sure to keep a good seal around the opening with your lips, otherwise, the air will escape and you won’t be able to whistle. Experiment with different levels of air pressure until you find a sound that you like.
How to whistle using your tongue
First, stick your tongue out of your mouth. Next, curl the tips of your tongue up so that it forms a small “tube.” Finally, blow air through the “tube” formed by your tongue. If you do it correctly, you will produce a whistling noise.
