Mini Maracas Nature Craft

An easy fall craft for kids that is fun to play with on Thanksgiving day

Pumpkin shakers

  • Cut out a section (top and bottom) of an egg carton and fill one side with dried beans.
  • Glue the sides together, with an ice-pop stick coming out of the middle.
  • Paint with orange paint, let dry, and push a green pipe cleaner into the top as a stem; slip on a green construction-paper "leaf" and bend pipe cleaner over in a loop.
