I made this football noise maker using the screw top beer cans. I spray painted them and used electrical tape for the stripes and a white permanent maker to make the football lace. I also put the kids #'s on the other side and filled them with 5 pennies. They worked great!
Place rice into a bowl, add food coloring and stir to mix well. Lay on wax paper lined cookie sheet to dry. Use a funnel to get the dried rice into the bottle and then add beans if needed. White beans may also be dyed to match your school/team colors. Design and print your labels and attach with double sided tape. You may also want to glue the lids on to avoid spills.
