Baby Rattle


Supplies Needed

*Pastel colored “eyes”

*lathed toothpicks

*tacky glue

*acrylic paints in your choice of colors

 Making the Project

{Hobby stores sell the smallest plastic 'eyes' {about 1/8” in diameter} with a pastel or primary colored bead in them. You may have to look or ask for them because they always seem to be out.}

*You will need 2 eyes (for each rattle), which you will glue together, flat backs together.

*Set them aside to dry.

*Take one fancy handled toothpick and paint the fancy end any color/colors you want. Let dry. 

*Cut off the sharp end so the fancy end is about 3/8-1/2” long, just where you stopped painting. Make sure to make a flat cut so your 'eye' will stay glued.  Glue the eye to the end of the toothpick and you have a baby rattle that actually rattles.

{note: if you have the patience…you can take the white backing off the eyes very carefully…glue the domes together and leave the beads in the domes…glue back together and then you have a totally clear rattle.}
