This Monday morning, the Blossoms exercised their individual creativity by making their own rain sticks. We placed a variety of materials out and let the Blossoms pick and choose how they wanted to decorate their stick. Some chose stickers, some tissue paper, some colored, but it was all child-led. When they were finished decorating, they chose beans or rice (or both) to put inside to make our rain sounds. We plan on working together to make a few more for our classroom, in our musical instrument bin. It was great to see their concentration and pride when they finished their rain stick!
