Model Magic Maracas

craft

Upcycle all your extra plastic eggs! Model Magic maracas give you a fun, fresh way to make music.

  • 1.

    Let’s make some music! Gather all the materials on your work surface. Open a plastic egg and put some beads inside it. Close the egg. Use a piece of masking tape around the center of the egg to make sure it stays closed.

  • 2.

    Create the base of the maracas by placing the egg between two plastic spoons. The spoons will cradle the egg on either side. Use masking tape around the spoons and egg to hold it in place.

  • 3.

    Model Magic® time! Roll out a piece of modeling compound. Cover the egg part of the maraca with the modeling compound. Use your fingers to gently press the compound all around the egg so it is covered completely.

    Add some flair to the maraca by using additional pieces of Model Magic to add dots, designs, swirls or other personal touches. Choose different colors and patterns to express your creativity!

  • 5.

    Allow the modeling compound to dry overnight. The maracas will be ready to shake, rock and roll!
