Younger kids will know them as shakers but whatever you call them they are fun to use and super easy to make. Kids can create their own, even picking what they will use to make the noise. Whilst creating them, using them and dancing with them they will also learn that different things make different sounds. Use this opportunity to demonstrate how rocks will make a very loud shaker/maraca whilst some rice will make a much softer sound. That's a great tip for parents so you don't get a headache or go deaf, believe me it's great!
