She uses her leftover plastic Easter eggs to make these fun maracas for Cinco de Mayo

It’s almost Cinco de Mayo, a time for adults to indulge in guacamole and margaritas. But what about this kids?

Today, I’m going to show you a fun and easy Cinco de Mayo craft for your children. It’s also the perfect way to use your leftover Easter eggs. (The plastic ones, not real eggs — that’d be disgusting.)

You will need:

  • Plastic Easter “huevos”
  • Plastic spoons
  • Colorful stickers
  • Masking tape
  • Multicolored permanent markers
  • Dry beans (I used navy beans)

This is a great project to do with children — or a man-child, as I did. Or you can leave the kids to their own devices and have some quiet mommy time. (Once they start shaking those maracas, you’ll miss the peace and quiet!)
