- Plastic bottle with lid: skinny and tall
- Lots of toothpicks and/or wooden skewers
- Small grains: quinoa, barley, rice
Directions: Fill bottle with toothpicks and skewers. Leave about an inch of space near the top of bottle. Using funnel pour in about an inch or so of grains. Twist lid on. Shake or turn bottom upside and listen to the sound the grains make as they fall. Through trial and error add more grains or sticks to reach the desired rain sound. Once desired rain sound is reached hot glue the lid onto the bottle.
