Rainstick - Crafts for Kids

Last Updated by Nate Wek on
PBS Parents

Turn a paper towel roll into a rain stick with duct tape, aluminum foil and mixed grains! The aluminum foil inserted inside the paper towel roll causes the grains to trickle down slowly, creating the sound effect of falling rain. This fun, simple craft is a great way to start a conversation with your kids about rain and weather.

Materials

  • Paper Towel Roll
  • Duct Tape
  • Construction Paper
  • mixed grains or small noodles (we used corn, rice and tiny pasta)
  • Aluminum Foil
