Supplies: 
  • 2 wooden clothespins
  • 1 paper plate
  • Tissue paper

  • Safety scissors
Instructions: 
  1. Trace eight castanet shapes, 3-inches long, on tissue paper, using the image as your guide.
  2. Using safety scissors, cut the shapes out of the tissue paper. This will make the great "crinkle" sound of the castanets!
  3. Trace and cut four castanet shapes from the center of paper plate.
  4. Glue one tissue shape to each side of the paper plate castanet cut-out.
  5. You should now have four castanets. Glue one to each side of the clothespins.
  6. Taa Daa! Your very own castanets!
