shakers compressed

DIY musical shakers may look very simple but they require some fine motor skills.

Fill one quarter of the Vitagen bottles with rices and beans.
All three toddlers (age one, two and four) are capable of doing this. In fact, I think they enjoyed this step most. Our fourteen-month-old Tiffany impressed me with her ability to meticulously pick and place the rice grains/beans into the empty container without any assistance.

Seal the Vitagen container with scotch tape.

Only four-year old Heidi was able to seal the container with scotch tape on her own. Both Sonia and Tiffany needed help in this activity.

Decorate the bottle with stickers, papers, and whatever raw materials you have.
Sonia’s attention span was REALLY SHORT! By the time we started decorating the bottles, Sonia had lost interest in her artwork. She was playing with other toys… I finished up her shaker for her 🙂

Viola! All’s done.

What shall we do next?
