It just isn't Thanksgiving without some chaos, and in my family maracas cause just that! You're signing yourself up for some noisy kids after making this craft -- be warned! Egg carton Scissors Dried beans Glue Popsicle stick Orange paint Green pipe cleaner Green construction paper Cut out a section (top and bottom) of an egg carton and fill one side with dried beans. Glue the sides together, with an ice-pop stick coming out of the middle. Paint with orange paint, let dry and push a green pipe cleaner into the top as a stem; slip on a green construction-paper "leaf" and bend pipe cleaner over in a loop.
