small simple shaker egg craft

On Monday we did the simplest egg shaker possible. We used a kinder surprise egg container and filled it with a little bit of rice. Then put the egg back together and wrapped a bit of sticker around the seal(leftover white sticker from printer again cut with pinking shears) and prettied it up with some spotty tape I found at the cheapy store. Kids loved it.
