This is a kid's diy maraca with a bird design, very simple and quick construction. You probably even already have all the necessary supplies.
You will need
- craft or construction paper
- masking tape
- scotch tape (or a hot glue gun if an adult is assisting)
- Lentils or dry beans
- Cardboard tubing from a paper towel or tp roll
Tape off one end of the tube and fill with beans or lentils between 1/4 to 1/2 full then tape off the other end.
Wrap the tubing in your choice of colored paper and tape or glue together.
Cut out teardrops for feathers and a triangle for a beak.
Tape or glue the feathers onto the tube to form a crest and wings, fold the triangle in half and attach. then get to shaking!
