Painted Wooden Maracas decorated with Bells
Children's musical intelligence is enhanced by this creative project when they make rhythm with maracas which they can decorate themselves with paint and bells.
How to do it
Paint the two wooden maracas with Art School acrylic paint. Leave them to stand in a flower pot to dry for at least 24 hours.
Tie bells onto a piece of elastic cord. Approx. 14 in different sizes.
Now wrap the elastic cord with the tied on bells around each maraca and finish with a knot.
Musical intelligence. Enhanced by activities in which children must use their abilities to comprehend and express rhythms, tones, timbres and melodies.
