To make these rain makers you need:
Kitchen roll tubes,
Step 1. Spread glue around the kitchen tube and then stick coloured paper around the tube and tuck it in if it's too long.
Step 2. Place a large piece of card over the bottom hole and tape it on using masking table ensuring there are no holes for the rice to escape.
Step 3. Loosely fold up a piece of tin foil and then gently twist it before sticking it in the tube.
Step 4. Followed by 1 cup of rice. I got the children to help be holding the funnel or scooping in the rice.
Our finished rain makers were beautiful when finished and made for a great musical instrument to try at song time.
