New Year's Recycled Noisemakers
Ring in the new year with these fun noisemakers made from recycled and reused products! Your child will have a blast creating unique shakers and rattlers that can be bounced to any beat. Music can help children learn in many different ways. From basic concepts such as sound and counting, to tempo and rhythm. This activity will engage your child in the active learning process.
This New Year's Recycled Noisemaker activity will also encourage your child to learn about the environment and recycling as well as the art of sound. Have a super scavenger hunt in your home, and search for the materials required to create this festive noisemaker. Engage your child in the creative process by asking her to think outside the box as she looks for used or worn items that are fit for this New Year's Day activity.
