Afternoon Project

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!!!

Dear Mz. Leslie,
You are hereby granted the mother of the year award for encouraging your children to make lots of noise. That is more impressive than the fabulous craft itself.

Looks like you could start a little band. You just need a couple other types of noise makers. Great idea!
