Make Your Own Cardboard Tube Rainstick

Rainstick Supply List: 1 wrapping paper tube, foil, 2 small pieces of construction paper, markers, rice, packing tape
Start by decorating the outside of your rainstick.
Tear off a long piece of foil, approximately as long as your cardboard tube. 
Squish the foil so that it can slide into the tube.  You don't want to squeeze it too tight, but it needs to be able to slide all the way into the wrapping paper roll.
Use the construction paper and tape to seal off 1 end of the cardboard tube.  Pour in around 1 cup of rice and then seal off the other end of the tube.
If you slowly tip your rainstick back and forth you'll be able to hear a lovely rain storm.
