How to Make Corn Shakers

We made these simple shakers yesterday using a paper towel tube, some Do A Dot markers, and popcorn.

I sealed one end of the tube and then showed Juiciness and Sassyfras how to dot it in rows to look like a corn cob.

When they finish coloring it, they added about a tablespoon of unpopped popcorn and I sealed the other end.  We turned on some music and they marched around the house shaking these things all day.
