Paper Plate Tambourine/Shaker Music Craft

This is a fun and easy tambourine/shaker craft made from paper plates. It's similar to the Valentine's Day Shaker craft I posted before.


  • 2 paper plates
  • crayons, markers
  • tissue paper squares
  • dry beans or popcorn
  • glue
  • hole punch
  • yarn
  • tape


  1. Use crayons or glue on scrap pieces of paper to decorate 2 paper plates.
  2. Stack the paper plates and punch holes about every 1.5 to 2 inches all the way around both rims.
  3. Put one paper plate face up and put some dry beans or popcorn.
  4. Pipe glue all the way around the edge and sandwich the other paper plate on to so the holes line up. Allow to dry.(optional)
  5. Cut a piece of yarn about 3 feet long. Wrap one end with a little scotch tape to make threading easier.
  6. Thread the yarn through one set of holes and around the other side to the next set and so on all the way around the rim. Pull taunt, tie a knot around the end, and cut off the excess.
  7. Shake your tambourine/shaker.
