- Dry seeds: Lentils, chickpeas, beans, semolina or rice for example.
- Two sheets of aluminium foil
- A pair of scissors
- A stick of glue
During their travels, the Globe Trotteuses encountered some musical seeds...
If you want to make music with seeds too, come spend some time in their workshop!
Step 1: Cut around the outline of the maraca and glue the ends together by placing the white tab inside, then cover your shaker cup with it.
Step 2: Put a handful of dry seeds into your shaker cup (lentils, beans, semolina, rice, etc.).
Step 3: Take a piece of aluminium foil (about 15x30cm) and crumple it loosely until it fits into your cup.
Step 4: Cover your cup with a sheet of aluminium foil, taking care to cover the edge of your cup, then trim any excess foil with your scissors.
Step 5: Close your cup with the transparent lid.
You are now ready to play the maracas!
Tip: By changing the type and quantity of the seeds, you can have fun creating different sounds.
