Bell Grager (Noisemaker)
No m’gillah reading is complete without gragers and they are easy and fun to make at home!
This grager has turned into something of a family favorite. The noise isn't as loud and intense as a standard grager. The bells make it sound like a cross between a baby's rattle and a sleigh ride.
- One colorful popsicle stick
- Colorful twine
- 8-12 Colorful small bells (you can get them easily on Amazon)
- Scotch tape
1. String the bells on to the twine.
2. Wrap the twine around the popsicle stick
3. Secure the ends either by tying loose knots or by taping it down.
Homemade Maraca Grager
- Small, empty, clean plastic bottles; or empty, clean juice cartons
- Beans or large beads for filling
- Fabric scraps, fancy papers, paint or other art supplies for decorating
- White glue and water
- Fill bottle or box with the dried beans or beads.
- Seal it. (For the juice boxes you might want to use heavy tape to ensure it doesn't pop open when shaking it.)
- Using watered down white glue as an adhesive, affix scraps of colored tissue paper, paper confetti and/or paint to the gragers to decorate them.
