Selfmade Rainsticks – perfect for children!
I’m a teacher for early music and arts education, and here’s a tutorial for selfmade rainsticks which I developed. My little students are 3 to 6 years old, and I didn’t want them to use a hammer and sturdy cardboard tubes (it would have taken too long; we have only one hour per week). At the hardware store, I found the perfect material: insulation tubes made of foam! They’re not expensive, and the little ones can easily stick the nails into the foam.
It’s great for small groups of children, and the rainsticks sound wonderful!
