This Week's Blogger - Selden

In art we made rain sticks.

How they work:
Objects, not too big or small, hit nails in a cardboard tube.

How to make:

1. Paint and decorate a cardboard tube
2. Hammer in nails with hammer. Make sure there aren’t too few.
3. Seal it halfway
4. Add 3 cups of medium weight objects
5. Seal all the way

(Turn upside down to use)

Selden, I've seen the rainsticks in the art room and they look very interesting. I can't wait to hear them in action at the Reflections Night concert. You've all put a lot of work into them and I am proud of you.

I wish I could be there at the Reflections Night. My studio recital is on Saturday afternoon and I could not move my piano students that night to a different night, so I have to teach during your concert. I look forward to the "Afterglow" back at school though.

I thought your directions for making the rainsticks quite clear and logical. It's amazing that you are only a 2nd grader!

Selden, I think that blogging about the rainsticks was a great idea!

The rainsticks should impress our parents at you-know-what when you-know-which-song happens.
