DIY Rainsticks


We took some time to reflect on the origin of the rainstick and create our own version, courtesy of The Imagination Tree. http://theimaginationtree.com/2011/02/diy-rain-stick.html
I presented the tray of materials and the brainstorming ensued of the easiest way to puncture the flimsy cardboard tube, where to place said punctures and how to attach tape to the ends so the peas wouldn't stick.


In the end, we duct-taped the entire tube to keep the nails securely in place.
If it was a rainy day you could include pan lids outdoors for a water symphony!
