Mardi Gras Castanets

Here is another way for your children to make some noise this Mardi Gras!

Mardi Gras Castanets

You will need:

Paper plate
Paints
Lids from plastic milk/juice bottles
Strong glue

Instructions:

Paint the back of the paper plate and leave to dry.

Fold the plate in half (with the paint to the outside) and, with strong glue, stick the milk bottle lids along the inside edge of the plate, making sure to leave a gap a couple of inches either side of the fold line.

When the glue is dry, play your castanet by holding it between your thumb and fingers and clicking together.
