For Cinco de Mayo in Kdg. - Plastic egg maracas - plastic easter eggs, fill them with what you want (candy, beans, etc.) 2 plastic spoons, wrap in colorful duct tape or plain masking tape and hand decorate.
castanets using bottle caps & cardboard. to cover up the beer bottle caps I gave each cap a coat of Mod Podge. It acts as a sealer so that the paint will stick to the cap. Then I painted each cap with acrylic paint. - Music theme next year!
