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.”
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.
