Make Paper Plate Tambourines

3.6 based on 88 ratings

What You Need:

  • 2 paper plates
  • A handful of dried beans
  • A stapler
  • Magic markers, stickers, glitter glue, etc

What You Do:

  1. Set one paper plate on the table and have your child drop a good handful of beans on it.
  2. Top with the other plate, face side down, and staple the edges of the plates together. Make sure the staples are close enough together that no beans can escape!
  3. When the tambourine is fully constructed, hand your child the art supplies and let him go crazy with the decorations! Stickers, finger paint, even feathers and ribbons will give this quick craft a touch of flair to last through many musical numbers!
