DIY Musical Egg Shakers

Now, I know this might seem like a duh project, but it gave us cheap thrills and great giggles!  Greta and I made these DIY egg shakers before Christmas.  She goes to music class at school and comes home talking non-stop about “shaking eggs.”  So, one Saturday morning as she was trying to dance around with imaginary egg shakers, I grabbed these three supplies.

We filled the eggs with everyday rice.  By the way, one of those eggs is actually a plastic pod that toys come in from a vending machine, the other is a plastic Easter egg.  Then, out of her reach, I glued the edges of the egg and snapped them together.

The next step is important – wipe any excess glue off with a paper towel or rag to avoid gluing yourself to the egg.  Then, allow egg to dry completely before using.

Greta went bananas over them…until Santa brought her legit music egg shakers for Christmas.  They are the four black eggs in cups on the fireplace in this image.  Sigh, well, at least she has extras for family and friends.
