Yesterday i saw this craft project to make with the kids....i wish i could remember where...but i can't. i knew the kids would love it and it was so easy. Easy enough that i just remembered what to do instead of needing some hand holding with directions.
I collected up our empty toilet paper rolls(man we use a lot of toilet paper). Then i had the kids color a picture on construction paper that we cut to the size of the roll. Avery colored on a pre-cut piece and mitch we just cut out of his full size drawing. Glue the drawings on with a glue stick.
Pinch the end of the roll together and staple it. Now fill it with whatever kind of noisy stuff you have....we used bells, beans, birdseed and rice. You could also use beads if you have them, anything that makes noise when you shake it up! Next pinch the top together in the opposite direction, see the picture above, and shake!! Have a kid parade and make some noise!!!
My name is Leslie. I live in Virginia. I am a wife to Chris, a super husband/great daddy/army officer/PhD candidate. I am a mother to three very exciting kids, Avery and Mitchell, ages 13 and 10 and "baby" Delilah who is 5. I am a little crafty. I love fabric, quilting and I love my friends and family. I hope here I can keep up with all of you that are so very far away.
