Now, I know this might seem like a duh project, but it gave us cheap thrills and great giggles! Greta and I made these DIY egg shakers before Christmas. She goes to music class at school and comes home talking non-stop about “shaking eggs.” So, one Saturday morning as she was trying to dance around with imaginary egg shakers, I grabbed these three supplies.
We filled the eggs with everyday rice. By the way, one of those eggs is actually a plastic pod that toys come in from a vending machine, the other is a plastic Easter egg. Then, out of her reach, I glued the edges of the egg and snapped them together.
The next step is important – wipe any excess glue off with a paper towel or rag to avoid gluing yourself to the egg. Then, allow egg to dry completely before using.
