These paper towel rain makers will bring out your children's creativity in more ways than one!
Not only will they enjoy making them, they'll also have a blast actually using them, to make plenty of noise at a family celebration or to make sweet music (!) at home.
What you will need to make Paper Towel Rainmakers...
- paper towel holders
- rubber bands
- dried beans
- waxed paper
- paints, crayons, markers, glitter
First, take a paper towel roll and decorate it. You are creating a musical instrument here, so really go to town - why not make it look super-stunning by painting it with metallic paints then glueing on sequins?
Take a circle of wax paper and place it over one end of the roll. Secure it tightly with a rubber band.
Pour in two handfuls of dried beans - try split peas or lentils, or you could even use rice!
Cover the open end of the roll with a second circle of wax paper and seal as before.
Tip your rain maker from side to side to hear the sound it produces... let's get the party started!
