The materials for an April showers rainstick craft.
I absolutely love this! Make a rain stick with sturdy cardboard tubes, dried beans a few tiny nails and decorate with paper and fabric and ribbons etc. Such fun! And then enjoy the sound. Wow.
Traditionally made from dried cacti, this simple DIY rainstick has the same sound down. You'll need a paper towel tube, tinfoil, uncooked rice, and colored duct tape.
