DIY Rainsticks

Super Crafty Suzanne originally shared this idea for a cheap, easy, and fun project for kids with Good Morning Connecticut, but I’m even more excited about her posting the idea on her site, see the post here. Who would have a guessed an old wrapping paper tube, some crafts you have on hand and a few beans could turn into something so wonderful. I truly cannot wait to share this project with my children. They’ve never met a rain stick they didn’t like.

Map storage tube

At work I often use expandable mailing tubes that would also be perfect for this project. These tubes have plastic or metal caps on each end that would make sealing the ends a neater and more permanent solution.

If you make your own version of a rain stick, we’d love to see pictures or hear your story. Post them here or email us at kidsstuffworld@gmail.com Don’t forget to check out our other Fun Things To Do With Your Kids ideas – let us know how you like the content so far and what types of activities you’d like to see more of.
