Egg shakers are a smaller version of the maracas. Musicians like to use egg shakers because they are small, cheap, and easy to pack around. You can use egg shakers to keep a beat, and to create rhythms as you slide them back and forth. I have created a simple version of an egg shaker that you can make with your kids. Hope you have as much fun as we did making them and shaking them!
