    Hi there! We made some recent changes to the Sprout Privacy Policy because, as the newest member of the NBCUniversal family, we decided we should look and feel like the rest of the crew. So what’s new, you ask? For starters, you’ll notice the NBCUniversal overall policy contains new children’s sections for Sprout and our new Universal Kids site, including descriptions of when and how we may collect data from kids. We also added updated contact information in case you want to reach out to us. Our goal is to make the sections directed towards kids both easy to read and understand, and we think we’ve done a great job. And we hope you do too!


    Egg Carton Maracas

    From the show

    Shake it up with these maracas!

    TAGS: 2-3 Craft

    What You´ll Need

    • Egg carton
    • Pompoms
    • Ribbon
    • Beans or rice
    • Ice pop stick
    • Glue
    • Paint brushes


    1. Gather all materials.

    2. Cut four individual cups out of an egg carton. Fill two of these cups with beans or rice. Place glue around the perimeter of these cartons. Then, place the other two cups on top of the first two cups so that the beans or rice are sealed inside.

    3. Before your glue dries, slip an ice pop stick between the two halves of each egg carton maraca.

    4. Once your work has dried, use paint, pom poms, and ribbon to decorate your creation. Then, give your maracas a shake!
