Photobucket The comment I hear from parents over and over is that they just hate the mess that doing crafts with their kids make. There are ways around the mess, and here is a fun music shaker that is mess free ! 1. Gather your materials. You will need a plastic container with a lid ( ours is a puffs container), some stickers, buttons ( uncooked rice,popcorn, pasta or beans work great too) and some glue. Photobucket 2. Start by adding stickers to your container. Something I love about using stickers is that you can use character ones, letters, numbers... the sky is the limit! Photobucket 3. Pour in the buttons. Photobucket 4. Add glue to the top. 5. Pop the top on and let dry. 6. Make some music! Photobucket
