Make Your Own Musical Instrument: Rainbow Shaker

Follow the rhythm with Blue & Josh

Hear that? It’s the rhythm of your very own musical shaker. It’s ridiculously simple to make with things found in the pantry and a jolt of rainbow color.

What You’ll Need

  • paper plate
  • dry pasta (dry beans will work too)
  • paint
  • paint brush
  • hot glue gun

How to Make:

Step 1: Draw six concentric circles on the back of a plate.

Step 2: Fill each ring in with a color of the rainbow, starting with red in the outer ring and finishing with purple in the center.

Step 3: Once the plate dries, fold the plate in half so that the rainbow faces outside and fill with dry pasta.

Step 4: Hot glue the perimeter to seal the pasta inside.
