HOW TO MAKE RAINSTICKS

Lisa M. - posted January 20, 2004
This is a site for making rain sticks. Rain Sticks - DIY Network -- Kids I thought it would be neat because one of the first steps is poking the tube with toothpicks (you can make a crucifixion metaphor) and turning into a rain stick (rain, renewal, new-life, resurrection.) It would probably have to be done over two weeks, or with two groups of kids because it does take time to dry.
