"Apples make a fun theme for fall crafts don’t they? Paper plate apple music shakers make a fun back to school activity or fall craft for kids. Kids will enjoy making music by shaking their home-made instruments, playing marching-band, or even shaking them along to circle time songs. Once your apples are completely dry it’s time for the kids to make music with their new homemade instruments! Kids can dance and shake the apples, shake them along to a beat, or make up their own song with their apple shakers."
