DIY Egg Shakers

Posted On: 29th of March, 2020
Posted In: Chucks Know-Hows

Looking for some chocolate free Easter gift ideas? We had fun creating this Montessori inspired egg shaker set.

Using our Hollow Wooden Eggs and MTN Water Based Spray Paint this game is to teach sound recognition to small children - discover the 3 different sounds, match the 2 eggs that sound the same. Order them from soft to loud.

YOU WILL NEED
• 6x Hollow Wooden Eggs
• PVA Glue
• Edible dry foods - we used Cous Cous, Rice and Macaroni
• Wooden plank and hole saw for base (optional)
MTN Gesso Primer
• 3 Colours of Spray Paint - we used MTN Water Based Paint (We used Raw Umber, Burt Umber, Grey Green)

STEPS
• Fill 2 eggs with equal amounts of Cous Cous, 2 with Rice, and 2 with Macaroni
• Use a small amount of PVA glue to seal the eggs closed
• Measure and cut a small board to sit the eggs on, and make holes with a whole saw for the eggs to sit in (base is optional, you could just find a box or basket to house the eggs in)
• Prime your wooden objets with MTN Gesso Primer (this is a water based primer with no harsh solvents)
• Using MTN Water Based Paint, paint your base 1 colour, then paint 1 set off eggs in 1 colour (so you have 1 of each sound) then the remaining 3 eggs in the last colour - an egg carton is helpful to hold the eggs as you spray them

EXHIBITION LISTING

Opening: 12th Feb 6-9pm
Exhibition Continues: 13th- 6th March
Stala Contemporary: 12 Clever Street, West Perth

We are super excited to see past artist in residence at The Butcher Shop Jarrad Martyn's new exhibition!

“It’s Not Down in Any Map; True Places Never Are” is a series of paintings and drawings by Jarrad Martyn which explore humanity’s relationship with the natural environment.

The process of bricolage, (something constructed from a diverse range of things) is used to collate academic research and the associated imagery to create an alternate conversation. The contrastingmotifs are used to explore the relationship between industry and the environment, species hierarchy, as well as the conservation function of zoos. Conversely, some works also tell a universal story that aims to unite humanity, while alsosuggesting what (if anything) the act of painting can offer to environmental conversation.

This body of work was largely made during a residency at Art on the Move, and is supported by the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC).
