Rain Sticks - DIY recycled / upcycled craft idea for an older toddler or preschooler. Music you can make! Kids also learn fine motor skills, responsibility, South American culture and music / rhythm / percussion.
The Crafty Crow: cork and popsicle stick rafts & so many other great activities for young children! Build a boat
What a fun idea! And I like the idea of the rain sticks too! Love this and would be great to do when making Rain Sticks instead of tissue paper then enclose whole thing in contact paper to keep while shaking rain stick.
