  • Stickers

Directions

Step one

Gather materials.

Step two

Fill the bottom half of each egg with about 1-2 tablespoons of popcorn, quinoa, rice, etc.

Step three

Put the top half of the egg on the bottom half and use a small strip of clear tape to seal the egg shut. If using egg cartons, cut egg cartons and place two halves together.

Step four

Decorate eggs with stickers.

Step five

Take each egg and give it a shake! Notice the different sounds each item makes.

Step six

Turn on some music and shake away!

Activities

Using their new homemade egg shakers, children can come up with their own relay race activities using large containers, bowls or buckets, a spoon and their bodies.

Encourage them to use different ways to carry their egg from the starting line to a turnaround point, and back again. If the egg is dropped, the children can decide how they must start again.
