Make this Taco Tuesday a fiesta with Hidden Valley Turkey Tacos! While the kids assemble their maracas using paper cups and dried beans or rice, you can whip up a fiesta-worthy feast.
Activity: Make Your Own Maracas
Each maraca requires 2 paper cups. Decorate each cup using markers or crayons, then fill one with 3 tablespoons of dried beans or rice. Place the empty paper cup on top of the cup filled with beans/rice (rim to rim). Use clear packing tape to attach the cups together securely. You may need to tape around the cups several times to secure it. Shake them up and let the fiesta begin!
