I've been wanting to try making one of these for so long! A parent of a child I once taught told me how to make a rain stick (or rain maker) while we were doing a project about the rainforest. It is so easy!
Easy Vibrant Rain Sticks for Kids to Make - Great craft for kids using paper towel rolls and dollar store washi tape! The tape is a great fine-motor work out, and the preschoolers loved using it. The 5-8 year olds really enjoyed making these rain sticks as well. - Happy Hooligans
