Turn your Easter Eggs into Musical Shaker Eggs.
April 3, 2012 by Cristi
Every year I am left with countless plastic eggs that I can’t decide if I should store to use for next year or get rid of! What do you do with your left over eggs? Well here is an idea- this year save your eggs and make musical shaker eggs with them!
Bee is back and going to share a video with us of a sing along using shaker eggs, but first let’s get our shaker eggs made up.
Here are the materials you will need:
First, spoon a small amount of rice, beans, gravel, or whatever you think would make a cool “shaker sound” into half of the egg.
1. Take the Super glue and glue the egg shut. Set aside to dry completely. (I was impatient at first and started gluing the ribbon on while it was still drying and ended up with super glue all over my fingers- not fun!
2. Once they are dry, hot glue some ribbon across the middle to hide the glue line.
3. With the extra ribbon (which I got for a dollar at Target) make a bow.
4. Then secure the bow on with glue.
There you go! You have a shaker egg!
Here is are closer look of how I did the bow just in case you didn’t catch it the first time.
Now you are ready to shimmy and shake!
Now for shakin’ those eggs… take it away Bee!
Another great song for shaker eggs is “I Know a Chicken” by Laurie Berkner- Here is one of her videos playing that song along with some additional songs. You can download her song on Amazon, iTunes and on her website, Two Tomatoes Records!
