Fun Day Monday

Hi there…..It’s Monday again and time to have some fun!!

We’ve been having lots of fun in my childminding service making our very own instruments. We made some shakers which were great fun to make and even more fun to shake and dance with!

If you want to make your own shakers you will need the following:

  • 2 x paper cups
  • Sticky tape
  • Split peas, lentils or rice
  • Spoon
  • Glue
  • Glue spreader
  • Sequins and foam shapes
  • An apron

and you need to do the following:

  • Put the apron on your little one…… this could get messy!
  • Give them the spoon and get them to put some split peas, lentils or rice into one of the cups
  • Now place the other cup on top of this one (upside down) and stick in place with the sticky tape….. I wrapped the tape around several times to make sure that the cups won’t fall apart when being shaken
  • Give your little one the shaker, the glue and the sequins and foam shapes and let them decorate it
  • Let the glue dry before shaking the shaker and making lots of noise!!
