arty and i attend music class once a week, and one of his favourite activities there is shaking the shakers in time with the songs.
shakers are a great way for even quite little babies to engage with music, because they’re easy to grip in small hands, and don’t require a great deal of dexterity or coordination to operate.
so, when sj brought home a couple of kinder surprises from the supermarket the other day, i knew exactly what to do with the eggs inside…
- open the eggs, and place a small amount of a different type of seed inside each one. don’t be tempted to overfill them – the seeds need room to rattle around inside
- close egg, and seal with washi tape
- put some music on, dance like dorks around your living room, and shake your shakers in time to the beat
