Maracas

Maracas

Yesterday, I gave a workshop for a group of 5-year-olds. They made and decorated their own maraca. They were going to use it in a musical activity. This was a perfect example of integrating visual arts with other topics, in this case music.

For the children, however, it was first and foremost a creative activity that they liked a lot. We first painted the bowls and the handle. Each child chose the colour they wanted and when they had finished painting the base coat, they could apply gilded accents with a sponge.

After that, we divided the group in two and each sub-group in turn assembled their maracas, filling them with seeds to make music.
