Music Shaker

This is a fun and easy music shaker for any age to make.

You will need: paper towel roll, wax paper, packing tape, construction paper, glue, scissors uncooked pasta or rice and decorations.

Wrap roll with construction paper and glue.
Tape wax paper on one end. Fill with pasta or rice. Cover other end with wax paper and packing tape.

Then decorate with markers or sticker.

My kids glued a plastic cup to the top to make it a microphone.

Too cute! Maracas are on our "schedule" in a few weeks and I was thinking of making them with water bottles. But this looks much cuter :-)

You can also use recycled mailing tubes that have lids on them or pringles cans work really well, too. Kids love to create and shake!
