What you will need:
- Cardboard Tube (Kitchen roll tube/wrapping paper tube)
- A selection of coloured card/paper
- Aluminium Foil
- Sticky Tape
What you need to do:
Step 1: Take the cardboard tube. Cut a piece of coloured card to fit over one end. Use sticky tape to secure.
Step 2: Tear off a long piece of aluminium foil. Scrunch it up into a long thin sausage. Now twist it to make a loose spring shape. Place the foil spring into the cardboard tube.
Step 3: Carefully add a handful of dry rice into the tube. To seal the tube, cover the open end with a piece of card. Tape the card firmly in position.
Step 4: All that is left is to decorate your rain stick. Cover it with strips of coloured card to recreate a rainbow pattern. When the glue is dry, try out your rain stick by slowly tipping it upside down.
