Make your own Purim Groggers

Purim is a little over one week away and Moussia and Yosef are so excited. What kid wouldn't want to go to synagogue in a costume and make a lot of his noise shaking their grogger? 

These groggers (noisemakers) are easy to put together using empty plastic bottles. Decorations can be anything you'd like--ribbons, stickers, paint. (This year I'm doing everything for Purim in black and white with a hit of lime. Just because.)

To make these you need a wood dowel (I had mine cut at the hardware store), an empty plastic bottle and beans.

I covered the wood dowels with different fun tapes from the craft store.
After spray painting the bottles black and filling with beans, I decorated each one with fun washi tape, ribbon and stickers. Black duck tape worked well to hold the bottle to the stick.

They may just be the prettiest groggers at synagogue!
