Rainsticks, A Reading Rocks Book Club Activity. May 1, 2013

To culminate the two-month Reading Rocks Book Club based on The Indian in the Cupboard, the Olders learned about Native American glyphs and percussive rain sticks that were used to summon rain.  Here are some pictures of our Olders painting some paper towel tubes with the Native American pictographs.  After they are dry, each tube will be fitted with a “curl” of aluminum foil and small beads to make the rain effect.
