After this weekend, you might have a lot of plastic Easter eggs laying around from all your at-home Easter egg hunts! Use those leftover plastic eggs to make an easy shaker perfect for little ones to shake in an at-home jam session!

Easy Shaker

By using different materials inside each egg, each shaker will produce a slightly different sound!

  • Plastic eggs
  • Uncooked rice
  • Uncooked beans
  • Plastic beads
  • Super glue
  • Decoration (ribbon, googly eyes, washi tape, permanent markers, etc.)

Place each of the different materials inside the bottom halves of the eggs, then superglue the top half of the egg to the bottom.

Once the glue is dry, the shakers are ready to decorate. Your kiddos can design their shakers as they please, but be sure to do all gluing for them. Once the decorations are on securely, let your little ones shake away!

*Always supervise small children while crafting or playing with small objects like beans and beads.*
