The Thunderer Whistle

At the beginning of summer I started purchasing PE equipment for this next school year.  One of the required pieces of equipment that I wanted needed was a whistle.  I picked the ACME Thunderer Whistle all because it is the  the shrillest, most popular whistle in the world.

I figured I would give it a test run during VBS.  With up to 42 kids in my care, I was sure I’d need it.

I was very careful to blow on the whistle lightly, since we were inside a building. One day, the 30+ kids were not listening. I blew lightly two times. Still no attention was put on me. So…. I blew with all my might.

ALL eyes turned to me. You could hear a pin drop. It was a beautiful thing.  This turned into a needed item, real quick. 🙂

After I gave instructions on what to do, the kids started saying, “My ears are ringing.” I didn’t have to use the whistle again. LOL

I learned two things:
1. Use the whistle outside.
2. Wear earplugs, if whistle is needed inside.

If you need to pick a good whistle you can find information here.

  4. Fantastic! Does it work on husbands who are busily chopping down trees with a chainsaw and don’t know that you are desperately in need of a shoulder because you are exhausted from spending all week entertaining your aunt and uncle who visited from up north? LOL!

    Sorry not to visit more! They left today and I’m only just getting to my computer!

    Blessings!
