Lately Jack has been obsessed with pulling hair so the ribbons provide a much less painful substitute ;).
1. Fill water bottle with rice, pom poms and other Christmas (or any holiday) item. Also can use pasta, bells, beans or anything that makes noise. I used Santas, snowflakes and pom poms.
2. Poke hole in top with an old screwdriver and thread ribbon of different lengths through
3. Super glue the lid on.
Voila! A cute Christmas baby noisemaker
In conclusion: an easy craft that he can entertain himself with while I watch a Hallmark Christmas
