Paper Bag Maracas

Praise Him - Paper Musical Instruments Bible Craft for Sunday School

Children of all ages will love making these and using them to praise God. They are super easy and cost only pennies to make. Warning - these maracas are very loud!

What you will need:

Paper Lunch Bags

Colored Paper Lunch Bags

Masking Tape

Colorful Duct Tape

Colorful Washi Masking Tape

Unpopped popcorn, dried beans, small pebbles, rice, or anything you have to place in the bags

Colored Pencils, Crayons, Markers, or Paint

 

How to Make the Paper Bag Maracas:

1. Have your children decorate the bottom third of a paper lunch bag with markers, crayons, paint, or colored pencils.

2. Unfold the decorated paper bag and place another paper bag inside the decorated paper bag to give the maraca strength.

3. Have your children place a tablespoon of rice, popcorn, or anything else you would like to use in the inside bag. (Try different things in each bag and compare the sounds the bags make.)

4. To finish, gather up the sides of the paper bags smoothing them out as you crinkle them up. Spread out the tops of the bags and blow into them to puff out the bottom of the bags. When you have a good shape twist the bottom of the bags to make the handle of the maraca. Use colorful tape such as duct tape or washi tape to decorate the handle and to keep it from unwinding.

2. When the child is done with his design roll up the paper into a tube. Stick tape down the entire side of the tube to keep it rolled up.

3. Close up one end of the tube. Press in on the sides of the tube so you have small indents. Press down on the top of the end to close it and then staple or tape it closed. (Note: you can also add ribbon to the ends. Cut the ribbon into 12" lengths. Place three or four lengths together and tie a knot in the middle. Place the knot inside the end of the tube before stapling it closed.)

3. Let your child place a tablespoon of dried beans, rice, popcorn, etc. into the tube and then close the end just like you did the first end.

Children's Instruments and Praise CD's

 

I am so happy with your project ideas. This is my second year using them and after the kids and parents raved about how much their kids enjoyed the lessons I knew I found the right place. The best part about everything is that my class has more then doubled since the word got out that I am going to continue with using lessons from your sight. Thank you Jeanie
