Homemade Egg Shakers and Maracas
- Plastic eggs – any size will do
- Egg filler – popcorn kernels, dried beans, beads, pasta, rice, nuts and bolts, etc
- Tape – duct tape, electrical tape, and washi tape seem to be the best
- Plastic spoons – if you want to turn some into maracas with handles
We filled up a cupcake tin with a variety of filler items and gave each child a cookie sheet to TRY to contain the mess. Then, let them explore and create! Fill with a variety of items and listen to the different sounds the items create. Which ones are louder (forte) or quieter (piano)?Once you have made your egg shakers and maracas, hop over to our YouTube channel and find a song to play along to! Or, join one of our Livestream Sprouts Classes (for a small donation) and use them to make music with us! We hope you try this with your family and have fun making music together!Show us your EGGS when you are done! Post to our wall, share on a post, or send them privately to Jaime. We are giving away $5 Gift Certificates to the families who participate along with us! Check out our Pinterest page for other music instrument craft ideas!
