Make a handmade Purim Gragger (Noisemaker)

Materials & Tools

Juice cans ( cleaned and dried)
adhesive backed paper (Contact paper works well)
Stickers or colored tape
Jingle bells
Scissors
Glitter
White glue
Pipecleaners


Directions

Prepare the juice can by making sure the can is
washed and dried.

To make the end caps for the can, trace the circular
end on the adhesive paper. Draw another circle 1"
larger than the outline circle. Cut out the circles.

With the scissors make cuts spaced 1" apart around
the circle, from the outer edge in. Make two, one for
each end of the can.

Peel off the backing of the adhesive paper. Cover
one end of the juice can.

Place 1 or 2 jingle bells inside.

Now ask an adult to poke a hole in the center of the
metal or plastic end of the can.

Bend a pipe cleaner in half and insert the two ends
into the hole. On the inside of the can, twist the two ends
to prevent them from slipping back through the can. The
wire loop on the outside of the can will be your handle.

Attach the other paper circle over the open end of the can,
sealing the jingle bells inside.

Cut a strip of adhesive paper which is the width of the can
and is long enough to wrap around the can with 1" of overlap.

Remove the paper backing and wrap around the can, covering the entire outside of the juice can.

Now let's decorate it.

You can use colored tape to make stripes or decorative
shapes and symbols. Personalize you gragger with some
of your favorite stickers. Draw decorative lines with white
glue and sprinkle them with glitter. Shake off the excess.
