Native American Rain-sticks
Today at our home education group we made Native American rain-sticks. The real ones are made from cactus filled with beans and are used in ceremonies. Ours were made from packing tubes filled with foam packing pieces to which we added various beans, rice and corn. It was interesting to find out that different fillings made different rain sounds of varying duration. Thankfully we did not bring on rain!
