Last week on Artsy Play Wednesday, We Made That Blogspot linked a post about how to make tambourines from paper plates. That looked like a perfect project for the babies at this age, so we gave it a try. In order to make it easier, I did the gluing and stapling while the babies were napping. They decorated the tambourines and were able to play with them right away. We used crayons and paint rather than markers.
I opted to use rice and pasta instead of beads.
Ryder took a moment of contemplation as he colored his tambourine
and Capri paused with her paint in hand.
Xayden had a taste for blue
while Grayson indulged in several colors.
Grayson, Capri and Ryder had a little jam session.
It was a fun project. The babies enjoyed playing with the tambourines after they made them and proudly showed them to Daddy when he got home. I love to read about all the great ideas on Artsy Play Wednesday and try out the ones the babies can do now.
