Project

Noisemakers

Introduction

Kids will enjoy making these festive noisemakers almost as much as they'll like using them. Requiring only a few basic materials, this easy project is ideal for a children's party: When it's time to go home, guests can keep their colorful creations as party favors.

 

Materials

  • Scissors or decorative edgers
  • Cardboard or corrugated kraft paper
  • Markers
  • Craft glue, such as Sobo
  • Ice-pop stick or tongue depressor
  • Hole punch
  • Waxed twine
  • Beads or buttons

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Using scissors or decorative edgers, cut two identical circles from cardboard or corrugated kraft paper.

  2. Step 2

    Using markers, decorate one side of each circle.

  3. Step 3

    Glue the two pieces together with craft glue, sandwiching an ice-pop stick or tongue depressor in between the pieces for a handle.

  4. Step 4

    Using a hole punch, make holes around the edge of the cardboard circle, about 1 inch apart. Thread 3- to 5-inch lengths of waxed twine with beads or buttons, and tie the free end to holes.

    Depends on how old they are...5 year olds would freak out over the awesome noise-making capabilities of this one and would not be likely to eat the buttons.

    I don't think this is a good idea for children the beads and buttons pose a chocking hazzard
