Neon Zip Tie Rain Chain

This quick and easy alternative to a metal rain chain was made from materials from the dollar store.  The neon zip ties guide rain water down from the roof and away from the house’s foundation, in the same way you would use a traditional rain gutter.  Try making one of these with your kids and discover the cohesive properties of water (went all Science-y on you there) as the water runs together down the chain rather than splashing off.
