- Empty coffee can with lid
- Jingle bells or jar lids
- Put bells or metal jar lids inside the empty coffee can. Securely glue or tape the plastic lid onto the coffee can.
- Your child can help you decorate the outside of the coffee can. If you like, try gluing a piece of contact paper sticky side out around the can, then have your toddler stick on pictures cut from magazines, pieces of gift-wrap, or whatever you have on hand.
- Cover with another piece of contact paper. Your child will have fun shaking the can or rolling it across the floor.
