Making Noise Makers for New Year's Eve

While growing up my mom always allowed us to look around the house and find objects to use to Bang Rink in the New Year! Pots and pans plus their lids and wooden spoons were always a big hit! We loved being loud for a few minutes!

Here's a simple craft the children can make to use on New Year's Eve whether it be 8:00 pm or 12:00 midnight!

  • 2 plastic cups or 2 small plastic bowls
  • strong, sticky tape
  • paper clips or pennies or rice or other small objects

  • Partly fill one cup with small objects
  • Securely tape the 2nd cup to the 1st cup.
  • Shake! Shake! Shake!

If the kids really like making the sound instrument, you might consider beginning a unit on SOUND! If you check my Blog Archives on the left (Feb. 2011), I have 17 blog posts on Sound (a form of Energy). There are videos, crafts, experiments, puzzles, etc.

Here's a link to the 1st blog post on SOUND! Click here.

Happy New Year!
