Rainstick Construction Instructions

 

There are many sites on the web that have rainstick construction instructions.

For illlustrations, go to http://www.enchantedlearning.c...fts/music/rainstick/

Where did Rainsticks come from:


Rainsticks are ceremonial musical instruments used to invoke the rain spirits. They are made by people who live in the deserts of northern Chile. In Chile, rainsticks are traditionally made from dead cactus tubes with hundreds of cactus spines hammered into the tube. Tiny lava pebbles cascade gently through the tube, sounding much like rain.

For a simpler one, look at http://www.exploratorium.edu/f...ain_stick/index.html


 

Expanded Idea for the Song Arky Arky in addition to using Rainsticks:

In addition to using rainsticks, what other instruments and SOUND EFFECTS could be generated for the familiar "RISE AND SHINE....ARKY ARKY" song ??

For example, how about a sloshing bucket for "floodie floodie" and a bucket of mud to make the "squishy" sound for the line "get those children out of the Mudddy Muddy, children of the Lord", and a dog barking for "gopher barky barky".

The Arky Arky Song

To the tune of "Rise and Shine and Give God the Glory, Glory"


God told Noah there's going to be a floodie, floodie
God told Noah there's going to be a floodie, floodie,
Get those animals out of the muddie, muddie
Children of the Lord.

God told Noah to build him an arky, arky
God told Noah to build him an arky, arky
Build it out of gopher barky, barky
Children of the Lord.

The animals, they came in, they came in by twosies, twosies,
The animals, they came in, they came in by twosies, twosies,
Elephants and kangaroosies, roosies,
Children of the Lord.

It rained, it rained for forty nights and daysies, daysies,
It rained, it rained for forty nights and daysies, daysies,
Almost drove poor Noah crazy, crazy,
Children of the Lord.

The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy,
The sun came out and dried up the landy, landy,
Everything was fine and dandy, dandy,
Children of the Lord.

This is the end of, the end of our story, story,
This is the end of, the end of our story, story,
Everything was hunky dory, dory,
Children of the Lord.
