DIY Pig Maracas | SING Movie Easter Basket Ideas for Preschoolers
Every day, we can expect the biggest musical performance of a lifetime. My 4-year old diva is at the age where she just loves to sing and dance. And these days, my little performer just loves to reenact the songs from the fun animated movie, SING.
And with Easter right around the corner, I’m encouraging my daughter’s singing spirit with these DIY Pig Maracas and some fun SING movie Easter basket ideas for preschoolers.
Celebrate SING Special Edition, now on Blu-Ray just in time for Easter!
My kids are so excited that SING Special Edition is now available on Blu-Ray and DVD. It’s not too surprising; SING is a wonderful, funny, heartwarming film with great music and a fantastic cast. But in case you haven’t had a chance to see this animated film, there’s plenty of reasons of why this movie makes a great Easter gift.
From Illumination, the studio that brought you The Secret Life of Pets and the Despicable Me franchise, comes an animated comedy about finding the music that lives inside all of us. SING stars Academy Award® winner Matthew McConaughey as Buster Moon, an eternally optimistic koala who puts on the world’s greatest singing competition to save his crumbling theater; Academy Award® winner Reese Witherspoon as Rosita, an overworked and unappreciated mother of 25 piglets desperate to unleash her inner diva; Scarlett Johansson as Ash, a punk rock porcupine with a beautiful voice behind her prickly exterior; Taron Egerton as Johnny, a young gangster gorilla looking to break free of his family’s felonies; as well as Seth MacFarlane, John C. Reilly, and Grammy Award-nominated Tori Kelly.
SING Special Edition Blu-Ray makes the perfect Easter basket stuffer for this SING themed Easter basket, with so much more to love than just a great movie. The music-filled comedy will include over 60-minutes of bonus content and will incorporate three all-new entertaining mini movies featuring the cast from SING as well as an exclusive Tori Kelly music video and a variety of musical extras.

Pig Maracas DIY
I love adding a little personal touch to my kids’ Easter baskets. And this year, I’m adding a little crafty inspiration to go along with our SING movie theme. These DIY Pig Maracas featuring Gunter and Rosita make a fun addition to her music inspired Easter basket, and they’re so easy to make.
What You Will Need:
- 2 Wooden Maracas
- Pink Paint
- Black Glitter Paint
- Gold Glitter Paint
- 4 small wiggly eyes
- 2 pink buttons
- Stiff pink felt
- Hot glue gun
- OPTIONAL – extra glitter
The ladybug design is cute, but we’re looking for some “piggy power” here! Start by painting the rounded end of the maracas with pink paint. Dry between coats.
Gunter and Rosita are known for some pretty glittery wardrobes. So we painted Gunter’s maraca handle in glittery gold paint and Rosita’s in glittery black paint. Allow to dry.
Hot glue two eyes and button nose onto your rounded ends of your maracas to make piggy faces. Can you see Gunter and Rosita yet?
Cut your stiff felt into four long pointed ears. You may need to cut a rounded bottom. Hot glue onto your maracas. Then fold the ears about 1/3 of the way down and glue to itself,
OR fold about 2/3 of the way down and glue onto the maracas.
We’re done! Your child will love shaking things up with these DIY Pig Maracas while watching the new Sing Special Edition on Blu-Ray.
Add these DIY Pig Maracas to your preschooler’s SING inspired Easter basket for a shaking, dancing, and singing good time. SING is the musical comedy event of the year!
Be sure to pick up a copy of SING Special Edition Blu-Ray, in stores now and the perfect addition to your child’s Easter baskets this holiday season. Follow @SINGMOVIE via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Sing is a fantastic movie. I will have to get the supplies I need to make these pig maracas with the kids this weekend.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
Your daughter sure loved those pig maracas! I don’t know if I can pull off something like that because I am not really crafty, but I will share this post with my daughter. She can make this for her daughters.
Mary Edwards says
How adorable. I know my little nieces would love to play with these maracas. They loved the movie
Those are the cutest! I loved Song, especially the mama who feels rundown but manages to get her groove.

have been super happy to have received this wonderful basket.
Margaret Appel says
This was a fantastic idea for an Easter basket. A great way to substitute music & fun for all that candy that normally fills a basket. Kids need fun things to do, and this certainly will fill that need. Thanks for sharing!

We haven’t seen Sing yet, but I’m hoping to see it at the Regal dollar movies this summer! A friend highly recommended it for my kids because they love music!
