How To Make a Musical Shaker

Materials Needed
  • Cardboard tube from a paper towel, toilet paper or gift wrap roll
  • Rice or dried beans
  • Tape
  • Sheet of paper
  • Crayons, paint, markers or colored pencils

Create a musical shaker similar to a maraca or an African shaker. A shaker makes a pleasant sound and is excellent for setting a rhythm with less emphasis than a drum.

    1. Take a cardboard tube of any length and seal one end with paper and tape.

    2. Fill the tube about one quarter full with dry rice or beans.

    3. Seal the other end with paper and tape.

    4. Now decorate the shaker with bright colors and designs.

    5. Shake.
