Today with Playschool our main project was to make shakers and shake them during our dance party. It was actually a great little project that everyone (all five kiddos!) did and enjoyed. I stole this idea from my friend Liza, who got it from an art class, I think.
First you gather all the little toilet paper rolls that you’ve been collecting to do something with some day. Fold them in half so that they are more flat and easier for the kids to color. Gather everyone together and bring out some markers and crayons and let them go for it.
Then we all went outside and had a dance party with our shakers and some ribbons tied to shower curtain rings for swinging around. Our favorite party song? “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit It” by Will Smith. Classic.
