Those plastic Easter eggs are great for double duty with this fun Easter craft. Kids can experiment with making music and can try to identify what’s inside!


  • Plastic eggs
  • Your choice of rice, beans, salt, oatmeal or pennies.
  • Scotch tape
  • Permanent markers, stickers or other decorations


  • Open the plastic egg and add a tablespoon or more of of your chosen materials to the bigger part of the egg.  If your egg has holes, be sure to tape over those from the inside.
  • Close the egg and tape around the seam.
  • Decorate the egg with markers, stickers or other decorations.
  • Now you are ready to make some noise!
