Easter Egg Maracas

What do you do with your Easter Eggs after Easter?  This craft is inexpensive, quick & easy – and the best part is how much the kids LOVE it.

I thought it would be fun, but I had no idea how big of a hit this craft was with kids of all ages.  My 10 month old and my 8 year old both loved their maracas, so did all the kids at our play date: boys & girls ranging in age from 1-8.

What you need (per maraca):

  • One Easter Egg
  • 2 Plastic Spoons
  • Masking Tape
  • Dry Elbow Macaroni (you can also use beans, popcorn kernels, rice, etc.)

The materials needed to make Maracas: An Easter egg, spoons, tape and macaroni

Fill half of your egg with macaroni.  Close the egg tightly and sandwich it between the 2 spoons.  Take a small piece of masking tape and tape the handles together and a larger piece of masking tape to tape around the spoons and the egg, making sure to tape over the opening of the egg so that it has extra reinforcement to stay closed.

You can leave your maraca like that – or cover it completely with tape for a different look.

I found some fun patterned masking tape at Target – but you could also use plain masking tape and decorate it with markers!
