Rainstick

by Kevin M.

The name of my instrument is Rainstick. My instrument is in the percussion family. I used my hands, red, green, yellow, white and black paint, tape and 2 tubes.

First, I took 2 tubes and put rice into the tubes. Then, I taped the sides so the rice would not fall out. Lastly, I painted funky designs on it. I made the instrument by myself. My mom helped me paint it. I play it by shaking it.

I enjoyed the instrument project. I especially liked the part when I learned that if you shake my instrument it makes a louder sound !
