Puili sticks are normally made from bamboo and used in Hawaii, Tahiti, and other Polynesian islands.
I found the dance on youtube and adapted the steps for 3rd graders.
We collected paper towel rolls, 2 for each student. In art class, the students cut slits in a third of the tubes and decorated them. (You could also use rhythm sticks.)
