In some cases I’ll use a coffee stir straw. They set their embouchure and hold the straw in the lips, then blow the air through the tiny straw. Once we can get air moving without blowing the straw across the room, then we start putting the mouthpiece over the straw and blowing so they feel the rim on the lips with lips together.
After this we’ll “pull the plug” where the take the straw out while blowing. If their lips are moist, they’ll get a buzz.
This technique can set a kid up a little too tight-lipped, so exercise cautious judgement in its use - not everyone needs it.
