Both of the boys have had so much fun playing with their musical instruments. This is really multiple instruments in one…it acts as a maraca, a tambourine, and a drum. Talk about versatile!
A word to the wise: Don’t let this instrument be at the bottom of a dog pile while wrestling, lest it will crack. ;)
Here’s what you’ll need: 2 clear plastic plates, colored pom-poms, small colorful beads, and a glue gun.
1. Place a plate on the counter and then put all the “goodies” on the plate. We used colored plastic beads and pom-poms.
2. Place the other plate on top upside-down. Carefully hot glue the edges (without your children’s help, of course). Let dry until hot glue is no longer warm.
Let your little one explore!
