If your like me… You have a TON of these plastic Easter eggs!!!  While looking around on my favorite craft site Meet the Dubien’s…I found Jill’s post on Easter Egg Maracas which reminded me that I made these a few years ago for a group of two year olds.  They loved them!!  (not sure if the parents loved me afterwards) but was a fun project we made together.

Easter Egg Maracas

What you’ll need:
plastic easter eggs (You can find these even at the Dollar Tree!!)
dried beans
hot glue – optional

Directions:

1. pour some dried beans in the bottom of your plastic easter eggs.
2. put the other half back on – if you’re feeling crazy like me, switch up the colours.
3. if you think they close pretty tightly you may not want to or need to glue them. If small children will be playing with these or they don’t stay closed very well put a little hot glue on the seam before closing them. Allow to dry.
