Our craft project for this week was Paper Plate Maracas. This was a very simple project, but it really got the kids creative juices flowing. I enjoy watching the decorating ideas my little ones come up with.
Here are the steps we took to make the Maraca’s
- paper plates
- dried beans
- various items for decoration (construction and tissue paper, crayons, glue, scissors, craft punches)
Then, I just set the kids loose to decorate them however they wanted.
I think the most fun came from the little performance they gave afterward:
They were very proud to show off their creations to Daddy, Nana and Papa!
