I call this instrument a "Two-Way Maraca." I got the idea from my sister's Maracas in her room. My Mom and I looked around the house until I found things to use. I found a stick that is a root from a tree and two Easter eggs, beads and buttons.




After I collected the things and I started to put it together, I took some wire to tie the Easter eggs to the stick. Then I put beads into one Easter egg and buttons in the other. I put tape on the eggs to hold them shut.

Then I painted it with blow pens and put leather around the center for a grip. My Mom helped me tie it.



The eggs make different sounds. The green egg has buttons. The yellow egg has beads. The green egg with buttons has a high sound. The yellow eggs has small beads. It has a soft sound.
