The rattle

a round salt carton
some dry beans, rice, or pebbles
Pour some beans into the salt spout of vour carton. Close the spout and seal it with tape.
Then make a small hole in the center of each end of the salt carton. Push a stick that is as long as two salt cartons through both holes. Put tape at the places where the stick goes through to hold it tightly. Add a tassel.
You can decorate it with crayons.
People in orchestras call rattlers like these “maracas.”
