Theme: Musical Instruments
The kids really love this classic craft. We decorate two paper plates with markers, get a scoopful of beans and glue the paper plates together. I use A LOT if tacky glue and have the kids "walk" their fingers around and around while we sing some songs to get it nice and stuck. After about 2 minutes it is ready to sit on it's own. We used the plates about an hour later for music and only one split open (after some enthusiastic abuse).
