Let’s make a maraca to shake, shake, shake — and then STOP! [This can help your child start learning about regulating feelings, in a fun way.]
I’ll put some dried beans or pebbles into an empty container and seal it up.
How does it sound when I shake it? If it’s too loud for you, we can add some cotton balls or balls of paper to make the sound quieter.
Let’s shake our maraca! I’ll sing, “Shake shake shake!”
Now, let’s stop shaking and STOP!
Let’s try it again: Shake, shake, shake, STOP!
