M told me that she wanted to make something this morning. Good thing I had planned something last night! We made an oversized maraca. It was very easy and she had a great time making noice...er I mean music with it once the glue dried.
To make them you need:
two paper plates
something to put inside- we used seeds that are at least four years old
Color the bottom of the plates.
Put seeds or beans on one plate and place the other one over it.
Glue the two plates together. Doe this carefully so you only glue the very outer edges together.
Glue the handle onto the maraca.
Let dry (in our case beacause of the SUPER high humidity today, this took quite awhile)
