It is that simple… I can guarantee you won’t just make one. In just a few minutes you will be able to make these maracas. 


My 11 month old daughter and 3 year old daughter love playing with these maracas. We then had a dance party once our maracas were complete!

We not only had fun making music but reusing items to create is a way to #GOMOMEEGREEN and help our environment but not putting those items in the trash.
