Summer festivities are in full swing! This means outdoor activities like trips to the beach, picnics in the park, and special events for national holidays.

We look forward to watching a parade march down Main Street, and riding the Ferris Wheel and eating cotton candy at the park.

Drums, horns, and other noisemakers are often used during celebrations, along with waving a flag. This simple noisemaker is sure to be a favorite with kids when enjoying the festivities.

This noisemaker craft is easy to make using a small branch or twig and basic craft materials. And while it's fun to shake and rattle, fortunately it's not quite as noisy as the fireworks you might be enjoying later.
