Crafty at Camp

Recently I announced a new blog series called Crafty at Camp.  If you are interested in knowing why I chose to start this, visit my first  Crafty at Camp here.

Today's Craft is called the Taco Noise Maker. I found this craft to be super fun, especially during our Chef week.

Here are the supplies you will need:

  • Paper Plates
  • Yellow & Brown or Tan Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Stapler
  • Green, Yellow, Orange, Red Tissue Paper
  •  Uncooked Beans, Rice, Pea’s
  • Glue

What you do:

  1. Create tan colored paint. (Skip step if you already have tan paint.) All that you need to do to prepare, is to mix the brown and yellow paint until you find the correct shade you desire.
  2. Paint the “Taco Shell” a.k.a. the paper plate. For the best results, let the plate dry completely before continuing.
  3. Fold the plate in half. Make sure the painted side is on the outside.
  4. On the inside of one side place the different colored tissue paper along the edge. It is very helpful to glue down the tissue. The tissue paper represents the meat, lettuce, tomato, ect. The tissue paper we had was already pre cut into squares, so you may need to pre cut them if you have larger tissue.
  5. Fold it back in half and staple the sides. Make sure to only staple half of the plate together so there is a hole to put stuff inside the taco. Make sure your staples are close enough together so nothing can fall through.
  6. Scoop beans, rice, peas, or whatever you please into the taco to create the maraca noise effect.
  7. Staple the rest of the side. At this point, nothing should be able to fall out of it.
  8. Shake and Dance around with your new Taco Noise Maker.
