Shake It Up with NYE Party Shakers!
- 2 paper plates
- paint brush
- elmer’s glue
- uncooked noodles (smaller ones work better)
- single hole punch
- fun materials for decorating (washi tape, stickers, glitter, sequins, etc.)
Step 1 Start with your preschooler’s chosen color of paint. Squeeze the paint onto one paper plate to act as your palette. Give your preschooler the paint brush and start painting the backside of the plate. This craft is a great opportunity to allow your child’s creativity to shine through. Feel free to let them paint it however they’d like.
Step 2 Once the backside of the plate is fully painted and dry, fold it in half with the paint side on the outside.
Step 3 Open the bag of uncooked noodles and pour some into the middle of the folded plate. It is completely up to your child to add as much as they’d like. Once you’ve reached the desired amount, use tape and glue to secure the outer edge of the plate.
Step 4 Now the fun part starts! This is the time for your child to go to town and decorate the outside of their party shaker. You can hole punch around the outer rim and tie on ribbons. You can add washi tape or stickers, glitter, sequins, etc.
We absolutely LOVE seeing your preschoolers learning through play! Please take photos and videos of your child's finished product and share them with us on Facebook and Instagram!
