Creating New Years Eve Noise Makers

Celebrating 2011 and the start to 2012 is a wonderful opportunity to spend time as a family. Your family can create homemade noisemakers to ring in the new year.

What You’ll Need:

  • White Paper Plates
  • Beans
  • Crayons and or markers for decorating
  • Streamers
  • Stapler

Let’s Get Started:

  1. Children can decorate the back of the paper plate. If you like, you can also use jewels or other decorating materials.
  2. Fold the paper plate in half
  3. Add beans to the inside of the plate, however not too full, this will help it make more noise.
  4. Staple the edges together to enclose all of the beans
  5. Glue, tape, or staple streamers to the sides
  6. Shake, shake, shake and ring in 2012!
