Project Instructions

Using Crayola® markers, decorate cardstock.

On the blank side of the cardstock, use Glue Dots® to attach rows of pony beads about ½" apart.

Roll the sheet into a long tube, use tape to secure the seam.

Using pencil and another piece of cardstock, trace around the circular end of your tube.

Increase circle size by about ½" inch and cut out. Make another circle. Cut small slits around the outside of cardstock circles to create tabs.

Fit circle into the end of rain stick, tape tabs to outside of rain stick.

Cut a strip of construction paper and use Glue Dots® on the edge to cover your tabs.

Fill rain stick with pony beads before you close the second end.
