Easter Egg Shakers

I put in a request to the Easter Bunny to hold off on a basket full of candy for at least a year.  Instead he came up with musical shaky eggs made from Easter eggs.  He said it was easy, inexpensive and far less time consuming than those blasted JELL-O Easter eggs that seem to be trending.

What You Need:

  • Plastic Easter Eggs
  • Fun Patterned Duct Tape 
  • Food Storage Items - For Joshua the Easter Bunny used dry pinto beans, rice, and popcorn kernels.
  • 10 minutes 
Fill the plastic eggs with various dry foods.  Ir you want to get fancy get some tiny bells from the craft store.  The Easter Bunny used varying amounts and types in each egg to create different sounds.  Wrap duct tape around the slit in the egg.  Voila!  Your easy, healthy, and fun Easter basket is done.

The only candy this kid gets to enjoy this year are the gummy bears he can look at on the tape. 

Joshua absolutely loves songs that involve shakers.   This is his favorite.  The version we listen to uses shakers instead of body movements.

Those are beautiful - I love the colors and how the designs turned out. I also love that it's a quick and easy project. We may just have to give it a try! Happy Easter!
