Popsicle Noisemakers

Barbecues, popsicles, fireworks…yes, July 4th is nearly here! Whether you are marching in a parade or just running through the sprinklers in your backyard, it’s a day to hang out with friends and family and celebrate summer.

Here’s a quick little noisemaker craft that will get the kids in the spirit! This project is easy enough that kids’ can make it on their own or with little supervision. You can also use these noisemakers for other holidays…think green for St. Patrick’s day, red and pink for Valentine’s day, or multi-colored for a DIY Purim grogger!

What you’ll need:

Use scissors to carefully poke a slit in the bottom of the box and press the popsicle stick through. Hot glue it in place.

Fill the box with beads, beans, or rice. (I happened to have star beads, but anything small will do!)

Put the top on the box and use the red, white, and blue tape to seal it shut, making it look like a striped rocket pop!
