Make "Smiley Maracas"

Designed and made by an 8 year-old

 

   

Stick-Twirler Version

 

Hand-Shaker version

 

Tools and Materials:

Paper Plates (Large or small)

Colored Markers, Crayons or Acrylic Paints

Wooden dowel or paint-stick (for twirler version)

Beans, uncooked popcorn or dry elbow macaroni

Stapler and staples

Hot glue gun and glue sticks (for adult use)

Crepe paper streamers or ribbons (optional)

 

    

 

Directions:

Pour some unpopped popcorn, dried beans or dry elbow macaroni into a paper plate. Place a second paper plate upside down on top of the first plate and staple it around the edges. For the "Twirler" version, insert a wooden dowel or wooden paint stick partway between the two plates and glue it in place. (An adult can use a glue gun to secure the dowel or stick and go around the edges with hot glue to keep the dried noisemakers from falling out. These can be a choking hazard to small children.)

 

 

Use the markers, paints or crayons to make a face on the paper plate. Each side of the plate can have a different design. Attach crepe paper streamers or ribbons to the plate with staples.

   

"Winking Whimsy"

 

  

"Smiling Birthday Girl"

Use:

Shake your noisemakers just for fun, to celebrate the Fourth of July or anything else that would like a little noise!
