WFMW: Musical Instrument Craft
Happy Wednesday to you! It's time once again to post another WFMW tip!

I don't know about you but as much as I love participating in this WFMW exchange, sometimes I can't think of any decent ideas. So, unless Shannon requests a specific theme, I've decided to focus my efforts on offering craft ideas. And I'd love it if you'd leave me a comment with some craft ideas of your own!

This week I'm sharing a musical instrument craft idea. It's quick, easy, and your child is sure to love it after they've helped you make it! I know Snuggle Bug loves his.

Noisemaker

Supplies Needed:

papertowel tube
string or yarn
5 beads
markers or stickers for decoration
hole punch

Directions:

Punch five holes around one end of a papertowel tube. Cut five pieces of string or yarn(each piece 5 inches long).Tie each piece of string or yarn to each hole. Tie one bead onto the other end of each piece of string or yarn. Decorate the tube with markers or stickers.

Creating a noisemaker works for me. To find out what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!


My past WFMW entries are found here.

Quick note: This Friday I'm hosting a Favorite Ingredients Friday- Easter Edition II recipe exchange.

Please join me in sharing the recipes of dishes or drinks that you might find yourself preparing for your Easter dinner!

Looks like a fun craft! And, it's nice that it has some use after you make it, unlike some crafts!

I have to admit that when I first saw this craft I thought "Don't kids make enough noise already?" And what they do not make, the toys make. However, I do remember my kids making those and loving them. They are grown now, and with kids of their own. I wonder if they are making them with their kids... maybe I need to send your post to remind them. ;)

Keep up the craft ideas, I love them!

My kids love doing noise-makers. My wife thinks its a waste of time. My kids are already noise-makers.

Hmp.
