I'm putting together a little music box for my son. While I plan on making some more generic musical instruments, I thought it would be fun to have some song specific instruments as well! These little Sunbeam Shakers go along with the classic Jesus Wants Me For A Sunbeam primary song. It only took me ten minutes to put these little shakers together, and that includes my potty break!
- 2 shades of yellow felt
- The template
- Little jingle bells (mine were size 6mm)
I centered one of the yellow circles over one of the sun shaped pieces and sewed around, leaving a small opening for inserting the bells.
I put 12 bells in each sun, but more or less would work too. Then I sewed the gap shut. Seriously, that's it!
These sunbeam shakers are already a big hit with my 21 month old. I wish I'd thought of these when I was a nursery leader!
