Jingle Bell Roller

This holiday jingle bell music activity will give your toddler hours of enjoyment.
By: Trish Kuffner, author of The Toddler's Busy Book

Jingle Bell Roller


  • Empty coffee can with lid
  • Jingle bells or jar lids


  1. Put bells or metal jar lids inside the empty coffee can. Securely glue or tape the plastic lid onto the coffee can.
  2. 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.
  3. Cover with another piece of contact paper. Your child will have fun shaking the can or rolling it across the floor.
