This is a super easy and frugally fun craft to do with your kids. Eli loves shaking them and playing with them.
5 to 7 newspaper pages
markers or paint (optional)
This is what I did:
Took a stack of newspaper about 5-6 sheets. You can paint or cut them before to make the shakers colorful.
Rolled them up into a long cylinder. Tape around the bottom half of the cylinder.
I used scotch tape, but masking tape or duct tape might make the base sturdier.
Use scissor to cut long strips a little less the half way down all the way around the cylinder top.
Final product! Loads of fun!
