Make Your Own Thunder Sticks
Have you ever gone to a professional game and many of the guests had the blow up thunder sticks? They are sticks that when you bang them together make a very loud noise. Basically, allows you to clap way louder than you possibly can with just your hands. Problem is after slamming them together, they lose air very quickly and one of my kids, if not both, always end up crying because theirs is broken.
No problem – I just made my own. Purchase a length of pipe insulation. It is really cheap and makes two full sets of thunder sticks. It should cost only about $1.30. Cut that length into four even sections. You can simply use it like that but the foam can tear and lets face it – how fun is it to slam to ugly gray things together? The kids also want to use these at home and they won’t last very long unless I do something to protect them. I turned to my trusty duct tape. Simply decorate them in one color, multiple colors and/or multiple patterns.
This is what I came up with.
