Becoming a mother is apparently the mother of all invention…
Make Your Own Easy Rain Stick with a glad wrap roll, some cotton reels and marbles.
Seal the end of a cardboard tube. (I used packing tape).
Slide cotton reels inside and use a marble between
each cotton reel as a spacer.
(Make sure you use cotton reels with ‘spokes’ so that
they will make more noise).
Add 2Tbsp rice and seal the other end of the tube.
Decorate. (or not).
Turn upside down to hear the rain.
*My toddler loves this and it doubles as a shaker – and triples as a (albeit brief) white noise maker too.
(We make parenting fun).
