Something to Make - Shakers
Here's how to make your own ...
Who can make this?
Anyone from aged 2 onwards
What do you need?
Plastic drink bottles
Something noisy to put inside.
Maybe even some stickers or paint to decorate
What to do?
Collect up some well washed out plastic drink bottles. The smaller one in the photo is a great size for baby hands. It was made using a bottle collected from a flight back to Adelaide.
Put something noisy inside. This project is one exception to my not playing with food rule. Some great food things to use are lentils, rice, barley and dried beans. It's nice to use different colours and sizes to give different sights and sounds. If you don't like using food in play, you can always fill the bottles with sand, stones, gum nuts and seed pods. Collecting them up is a fun activity on it's own!!
