This week I ventured into a dollar store that was not a chain store - so new items were to be found.
In the housewears isle I found this self adhesive paper with a great 'wet' look!
I had to buy it!
It screamed rain tube, so that's what I set out to make.
I used a tube from a roll of tinfoil - some tinfoil and rice.
Cardboard tubes from inside tinfoil or plastic wrap etc. tend to be thicker and stronger.
I love to use them over TP tubes for this toy. It's more durable.
First I took some tinfoil and twisted it up to fit the length of the tube - leaving about 3/4" at each end.
Cut your adhesive paper to cover the entire tube, but don't put it on yet.
Cut 2 circles to cover each end of the tube - about 3/4" wider than the opening.
Peel off the paper backing from the adhesive paper and centre it over the opening of one end of the tube.
Don't over fill or it won't sound like rain.
Then cover up the other end of the tube and cover the entire tube with the paper you cut to size.
And here it is - a rain tube! :)
