Tropical Rainstick

A wonderful sensory project for kids. Great jungle or African unit study go along.

You'll need:

  • Heavy cardboard tube
  • Caps for the end or duct tape
  • Seeds, pebbles, dried rice or other filler
  • Pretty paper to cover


  • Decorate your tube.
  • Seal off one end.
  • Add handfuls of your filler material. Seal off the other end.
  • Try different thing inside and different size tubes. Turn up and down slowly.

This is a simple craft even little ones can do.

This is a wonderful sensory craft. Young children love the sound and sensations this makes. This is a great go along for a jungle or African unit study.
