Football Jersey Shakers

Posted on: January 22, 2012

For the big game, we decided to do something special, and what is more special than a shaker.  One that makes a lot of fantastic noises when your team gets a touchdown!!


– Cardstock or construction paper
– Scissors
– Glue and tape
– Dry rice
– Crayons, markers, computer printouts, football logos, numbers, letters, etc. to decorate your jerseys.
– Craft stick

1.  Fold a piece of cardstock in half, and cut a jersey shape out of blue cardstock without cutting the fold.

2.  Decorate the jerseys using crayons, markers, print outs from the computer, numbers, football logos, etc.  You could also have letters for adding names to the jersey.

3.  Glue the edges of the jersey, leaving an opening at the top.  We also taped the edges, so there were no small openings.

4.  Add rice to the opening at the top.  You don’t need a lot of rice.  Once the rice is added use glue and tape the top to close the opening.

5.  Add a craft stick.

6.  Shake, rattle, and cheer for your team!!

So who’s it going to be … the Patriots or the Giants?
