Hi there. Welcome along for some more Brazilian-themed fun. Today we are focusing on music and telling you how to make an easy instrument for kids.

The word “maraca” is a Brazilian word meaning “percussion instrument.”

You’ll Need

2 Clean yogurt pots

Paint the cups, the lids and two ice cream sticks in bright colours and let them dry.

Fill the cups half-full with uncooked rice, popcorn kernels or beans.

Glue the lids to the cups with a glue gun.

Make a slit in the lids and glue the sticks inside the lids.

When the glue is dry, the kids are ready for shaking and music making.
