I'm so lucky to live by a park that has daily art projects. I don't know who's funding this, but thank you! We've gone 3 times this week. Here's the simple project they had the kids making on Thursday.
It's easy. It uses materials from around the house. It can be created quickly.
~IT'S TOILET PAPER MARACAS~
(cheers! high fives! cue the mariachi band!)
Materials: Toilet Paper Roll, Paint, Rubber band, Small piece of cloth
1. Paint tube
2. Cover one end of the tube with cloth, fassen with rubberband, and fill with popcorn or whatever. Cover other side with cloth, fassen with rubberband.
3. Test out your maraca
4. Wait for paint to dry and pray that no one confuses your beautiful musical instrument for trash. Especially you Owen. Oh geez. What happened?! Yours got all squished!
So there you have it. I'm off the hook for my second edition of Weekend Approved Project. This is the ugliest craft you've ever seen? Never. It's sweet!
Hope you have a great Fourth of July Weekend!! I'll be back on Tuesday with a post I've been really excited about. You'll see.
