drum project

Today I was cleaning out a cupboard and came across a can of formula and rice cereal. Unfortunately they were both opened so I couldn't donate them. But I thought I would make the cans into a project for the boys.
  • Each boy picked out the color construction paper they wanted to use for their drum and decorated it.
  • We glued the decorated paper to the can and then filled the can with some beans.
They called them "baby drums." We sat together and sang songs - the boys drummed and I strummed one of their play guitars. You can shake the cans too but hitting the top of cans with sticks still makes a cool sound with the beans.
