Make Easter-Egg Maracas!

To make Easter-Egg Maracas, gather some empty plastic Easter eggs and various items to put inside the eggs, such as beans, pennies, buttons, (be creative!). With your child, fill the eggs with a small amount of stuff (don’t overfill, or the sound won’t be as satisfying). You can make the collection permanent by gluing the eggs shut.
