Recycle leftover plastic eggs and turn them into fun Maraca-style egg music makers.


  • plastic easter eggs
  • plastic spoons (2 per music maker)
  • popcorn kernels (or rice)
  • hot glue gun and glue sticks



    1. Open a plastic egg and fill it about halfway full with popcorn kernels. Close the egg tightly.

    2. Using hot glue, glue two spoons to either side of the egg and press firmly. The glue will hold the spoons to the egg and will also keep the egg from opening!

    3. Shake the egg music makers!

    Happy Easter!
