New Year's Noisemaker Shakers

We love this idea from Family Fun for making recycled noisemakers:




Materials
  • Ribbon spool
  • Pencil
  • Masking tape
  • Dried peas or beans
  • Acrylic paint
  • Colorful stickers
Instructions
  1. For each one, first see if the holes in the sides of your ribbon spool are covered by the ribbon's labels. If so, use a pencil to poke through the label over 1 of the holes; if not, cover 1 hole with masking tape.

  2. Next, pour a handful of dried peas or beans into the spool through the open hole, then seal the hole with tape.

  3. Coat the shaker with acrylic paint, let it dry, then decorate it with colorful stickers.Noisemaker Shakers Step 2Noisemaker Shakers Step 1
