Egg Shaker

ages 2-6


Plastic Easter eggs, craft glue, dried beans or rice, decorating materials such as stickers or ribbon

Activity Detail

Here's an idea for a fun Easter treat that does not involve candy! Fill half of a plastic Easter egg with about 1 tablespoon of rice or small dried beans. Put a thin layer of craft glue around the rim of the egg and then snap the other half in place, closing the egg. Let the egg dry and then decorate the outside with stickers or ribbon. These little musical instruments are fun to give out at egg hunts, school parties, or playgroups.

Be sure to spend a little extra on more expensive plastic eggs so they will be durable. Also, it is a good idea to use electrical tape (they have all colors at hardware or home stores) to really secure that egg closed so rice and beans don't pose a choking hazard.

This is a nice, simple idea, especially since it doesn't involve candy. As the parent of a 5, going on 6, year old, I think it may be too simplistic for this age group though it's great for younger kids!
