You’ll need: empty toilet paper rolls scissors markers a stapler crepe paper dried pinto beans Early Elementary Activity: Easter Party Noisemakers To create the noisemakers, help children each cut open and flatten their toilet paper roll. Have children decorate the outside of their flattened rolls with markers. When they’re finished, staple two 8-inch strips of crepe paper to one small end. Roll up the flattened roll and staple shut the end that has the crepe paper. Help children each put a small amount of beans in their roll. Then insert two more crepe paper strips at the open end and staple that end closed. Start your party with music and let kids “play” their noisemakers along with the music. Then have kids hunt for hidden crosses throughout the room. Afterward, have kids act out the Easter story, using costumes and any sound effects you can gather.
