Rain sticks are well loved by babies and older children. They are also particularly good for people living with dementia. They remind people of the sound of gently falling rain, which is harmonious and relaxing.
I've been wanting to try making one of these for so long! A parent of a child I once taught told me how to make a rain stick (or rain maker) while we were doing a project about the rainforest. It is so easy!

a fabulous paper mâché sculpture lesson for us. Interactive rain sticks were an absolute hit! From the toothpick and cardboard tube construction to the Australian aboriginal-inspired end caps, we love every minute of it!
