Shake Your Maracas!
I hope you had a great weekend! This past weekend, I enjoyed a nice family reunion with probably at lease 15 kids running around and man!- do they like to make noise!! We listened to them banging on the piano, screaming in the pool and dancing in the kitchen! This got me thinking of a fun little toy to make with the little ones- homemade maracas!
To help your little ones make their own maracas, you will need:- 2 paper plates - a handful of raw macaroni or beans - acrylic paint - a jumbo-size popsicle stick - tacky glue - colorful markers or crayons - feathers or pipe cleaners
To start, encourage your little ones to explore their creativity using fun shapes and colors to color in the BACK of the plates and popsicle stick.
Using a lot of glue, trace the rim of the same plate, and place the other plate on top to seal in the macaroni.
Once dry, start shakin’!
