Rainy Day Ideas for Babies & Young Children | Musical Play

Rainy days are the perfect opportunity to pull out a rain stick if you have one in your music collection.

A calming activity involves sitting in a circle and passing it around. In smaller groups, each child can let the rain fall all the way down before hearing that it has stopped and passing it on. They become very adept at this!

We sing “it’s raining it’s pouring” and a variety of nursery rhymes while doing this.

It’s a listening activity so talking is a no-go and it should be a in nice, quiet space.

Even babies love these rain sticks, and singing along to them. They often reach to turn the stick when the sound pauses indicating “more”.

Have you got one you could use, or some materials to make one for your centre or home?
