Rain sticks are well loved by babies and older children. They are also particularly good for people living with dementia.  They remind people of the sound of gently falling rain, which is harmonious and relaxing.

Thank you! I tried to make rainsticks once and they didn't quite sound right, but now that I see how to do the foil I will try again!
