Nothing is more fun then playing with those cute little colorful plastic Easter eggs you find at this time of year.

But if you’ve ever tried to reuse them for musical “shaker eggs”, you’ve probably noticed how easily they break or come apart to reveal the tiny items inside that make the percussive sound. The small materials found inside could easily be eaten or become a safety concern for toddlers and young children.

Well, don’t give up on the idea of recycled Easter shaker eggs just yet.  Here’s instructions in Spanish and English on how to create simple hand-held shakers that won’t ever spill or open and can be a part of your family’s musical fun!  The easy step-by-step instructions can be found at the links below.

Still wondering what to do with those plastic egg shells?  We also love this PBS parents post from Salsa Pie that adds two plastic spoons to recycle them into a much safer set of egg maracas.
