“April showers bring May flowers.” How many times have we heard that? Interestingly, the rain stick project below is based on my book When the Snow Is Deeper Than My Boots Are Tall. And here in Colorado, we’ve got as much chance of April snow as we have April showers. But we’ve got the entire month – and probably then some – to enjoy life-giving, spring rain. Below you’ll find a lively music/science/rain activity to celebrate.

While you don’t need When the Snow is Deeper Than My Boots Are Tall in front of you to do this activity, it’s always a bonus if you do. You can buy it right here. And if you’d like to support your local Indie bookstore, buy it here.
