I am helping my daughter-in-law with home schooling by teaching my granddaughter, and her cousin, kindergarten science for half an hour once a week. Last week we learned about ice. This week we are going to learn about evaporation and clouds. I thought as part of our learning about rain, we would make rain sticks, so that when they turn it upside down and shake it (a little), it will remind them of the sound of rain falling. I did some research for child friendly versions of rain sticks. I didn’t want to have to push pins or skewers into the empty tube because that turns it into an adult project instead of a kid friendly project. This Instructable is what I came up with. So let’s go.
