- plastic milk bottle with cap
- brown paint
- paint brush
- dried beans (or rice, coins, etc.)
- Coat the inside of a clean, dry plastic milk bottle (ours was from McDonald's) with brown paint. Allow the paint to dry. The way we did this was to pour paint into the bottle, put the lid on, and tip it upside down. We let gravity do most of the work and then used a paint brush to touch up any areas as needed.
- Fill the bottle with dried beans. Replace the lid and have fun making some music!
