How I made my sound shaker: I took a cardboard tube
and I put nails in the tube. I then sealed one end of the
tube. I then put half a bag of rice and a baggie of
un-popped popcorn. I sealed the other end of the tube. I
covered the tube with a wood grain contact paper. When
you turn the tube over it sounds like rain falling. This
instrument belongs to the percussion family.
