One way to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month is by making Hispanic arts & crafts with your kids. Since I'm not very crafty, but my kids love making stuff with their hands, I'm always looking for easy ones. And nothing could be easier and more fun than making maracas!

We've made maracas in the past, as you'll see in the slideshow below, but I imagined there was probably a bunch of different ways of making these fun instruments that all kids love and I was right! Below, you'll find 10 maraca crafts that range from the super easy to the more elaborate.

My favorite part about this Hispanic craft is that you only need a few materials to make maracas and that the end product is something your kids will really love. In fact, my daughter liked the ones she made so much, that she decided to share them with her school friends.
