These weaved rain sticks are super easy to make with all materials you will have at home.
- Empty paper towel roll
- An old magazine or newspaper
- Scissors, Tape
First, cut some magazine sheets or newspaper into strips. Weave the strips in a criss-cross pattern.
Fold the strips on the paper towel roll and use some tape to get started. Cover the entire roll with these weaved strips.
To make the ends of the roll, lay two strips in the shape of a plus sign and tape them together. Add four cross pieces to form an asterisk as shown, taping after each other.
Center the strips on the paper towel roll, then fold them down and use a rubber band to secure them as shown.
Finish securing one end of the paper towel roll first. Then fill the tube about quarter with rice.
Secure the other end as well with the asterisk pattern paper strips.
Your rain sticks are ready to play with!
