Crank your dance parties up a notch and let the kids shake it off with colourful DIY maracas. Here’s everything you need for a good time.
1. Rinse bottle, remove label. Fill with fun small things like buttons or beads. Hot glue around bottle neck and twist cap back on.
2. Cut toilet paper roll lengthwise down one side and unfurl. Hot-glue around the outside of the bottle cap, then insert into roll and press. Hot-glue seam of the roll back together.
3. Decorate roll with patterned wash tape. Now you’re ready to shake it.
