LAST MINUTE NOISEMAKERS

Make a noisemaker for New Year's or Birthday party with stuff you likely already have on hand.

This was made 15 years ago by my then 3 year old son at Science Central, a local science museum on New Year's eve, but it can easily be made at home from youngsters on up with the following:
  •  2 Plastic cups
  • Clear Packing Tape
  • Dried peas, bean, rice, aquarium gravel, leftover jingle bells or any other small object.
  • Markers, stickers or anything else to embellish the cup.
  1. Decorate the cup with marker or stickers keeping in mind one is going to be stacked upside down on the other one.
  2. Fill the bottom inch or so of the bottom of the cup with the dried peas, bean, rice, aquarium gravel, leftover jingle bells or any other small objects.
  3. Stack the other cup upside down on top of the bottom cup then secure at the center with packing tape.
Shake to make noise.
    Hope that everyone has a happy and safe New Year!
    Decorate
