New Year's Eve Noise Makers

I’m pretty sure sanctioned late night noise is one of the funnest parts on New Year’s Eve for little ones. So with that fun in mind, my son and I rounded up a few household items and got to work on these festive shakers. Want to make your own?

You’ll need:
Empty paper towel/toilet paper rolls
Decorative tape
Noisy bits (we used pennies, pebbles, and bells)

Step one
Close off one end of your roll with a few layers of foil attached with tape.

filler up

Step two
Fill your roll about 1/3 full of noisy bits.

Step three
Close off the other end with more foil and tape.

seal one end

Step four
Decorate your tube with more tape.

Step five
Shake, Shake, Shake!


Wishing you a very Happy New Year!

    This is a cute idea. I run a home daycare and just made these with 2 year olds. One of them is a little on the destructive side, so I added two layers of foil on each end and construction paper in between the tape stripes. I also let them glue sequins all over and once the glue dried I wrapped the entire tube with plastic wrap, so it’s extra safe. They’re noisy but not so noisy the parents will hate me!
