Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had the power to make our own rain, especially with so much of the country experiencing drought? We may not be able to make rain in the real sense, but with this activity, you can hear the soothing sound of rainfall anytime you wish.
All that’s needed to make a RAINSTICK is a long cardboard tube from a roll of paper towels or foil, construction paper and stickers for decoration, dried couscous, and duct tape.
1. Cover the tube with paper and seal the seam with stickers or the tape.
2. Cut out two circles for each end of the tube. Drape one circle over one end and seal shut with tape.
3. Pour about 1/4 C couscous into the tube. Drape the second circle over the end and seal shut with tape.
