Greet the New Year with Pebble Shakers!
Noise makers are a fun and common way to "ring" in the New Year! However, they often just get tossed in the trash or—even worse—littered in the street, after just one use. Here's an environmentally-friendly alternative to the typical noisy shaker! Try this simple craft activity with your child, and teach him a lesson about the finite nature of resources in the process.
What You Need:
- 2 empty soda cans
- Construction paper large enough to cover a can
- Non-toxic markers or crayons
- Several pebbles
- Craft glue
- Aluminum foil

- 12" lengths of raffia, twine or ribbon
