Let's be honest.....I loved making little musical instruments as a kid and a paper plate tambourine thingy was no exception. My daughter loves dancing around and I thought she'd enjoy making some sound while doing so. I was right. The great news is that these are really super easy and quick to make.
Get two paper plates and places some dried beats in one.
Then tape the two plates together with the beans inside.
Then let your child design their tambourine however they want. Honestly, you could fill the plates up with any small hard objects that will make noise.
