April showers bring May flowers! In the spirit of encouraging more rain so that more flowers can bloom, children at Queens Library at Sunnyside were invited to make rain sticks. The supplies needed for the project? Simple! An upcycled tissue paper roll, a cloth to cover it, and beans to fill inside so children will be able to mimic the sound of rain when they shake their sticks. Materials for the Arts generously donated the beans and fabric we used for this project.
