I went to a workshop last fall where we made rainsticks from recycled
an old tennis ball holder (plastic) or you could use a 2 liter bottle
of soda, flat plastic pieces(you could use cardboard), tape, phone
wire, and ground up bits of plastic.

The holder was the tube, plastic pieces taped to the ends, phone wire to stuff
inside( not too much) and bits of plastic for the rain sound. These were
Paper mache the outside and paint abstract designs.

We also made large ones from the roll of bulletin board paper, carpet
rolls, any
large roll. Simply build the same way.

There were many projects, dolls, trucks, drums, etc. all from recycled
The place was a really great museum of recycled materials as well as science
projects. I can't remember the name but it was in San Antonio. May be someone
else from the same workshop can remember. I would love to site them.
