DIY Cinco de Mayo Maracas

DIY Cinco de Mayo Maracas
27 Apr 2015

For your festive celebration, the kids can create their own very easily.

What you need

The supplies are not hard to find – a toilet paper roll, tin foil, brightly colored sturdy tape, and rice. You can also use a plastic cup for the cannister and use popcorn kernels or beans instead of rice.

What to do

Ccover all but one end of the toilet paper roll in tin foil. Place rice inside the tube and then cover the other end. Wrap colored tape around the roll near the ends to make sure the rice won’t come out. Further decorate by gluing bright colored shapes of paper onto the maracas.

Time to shake your maracas!
