Paper Plate Musical Shaker Apple Craft For Kids
Apples make a fun theme for fall crafts don’t they? Paper plate apple music shakers make a fun back to school activity or fall craft for kids. Kids will enjoy making music by shaking their home-made instruments, playing marching-band, or even shaking them along to circle time songs.
Last week we did a fun Apple Tasting Project where my kids decided which apples tasted sour, which ones tasted sweet, and which apple they liked the best. They enjoyed filling in the apple worksheet that goes with the activity. I can’t wait to share more crafts for kids as we head into fall and winter!
Supplies Needed To Make An Apple Craft Shaker:
How To Make A Paper Plate Instrument:
- Paint the bottom side of one paper plate green or red and let dry
- Place plate painted side down and pour about 2 tablespoons of rice or dried beans onto the plate.
- Add a generous amount of glue to the outside ridges of the plate only, and press a second plate to the painted plate to seal in the rice. Let dry.
It’s Time to make Music!
Once your apples are completely dry it’s time for the kids to make music with their new homemade instruments! Kids can dance and shake the apples, shake them along to a beat, or make up their own song with their apple shakers.
These paper plate apples also make a fun addition to fall decor. Decorate your back to school breakfast table, homework space, or put them on the mantel when they’re not being used by the kids.
