The maracas can be made in any colors you want. Please feel free to substitute bricks for those I have shown. For example, you can use two 2x4's to equal one 4x4, two 1x2's to equal one 2x2, or two 2x2's to equal one 2x4.
I hope you enjoy this. Leave a comment to let me know how it worked out for you.
